JEHS Migrant Program
The migrant program was designed to help meet the needs of our migrant students. We offer on-going supplemental services, support services and academic advisement to our migrant students and their families. Some of the supplemental services are: student orientation, assist with registration, conduct migrant parent meetings, assist with testing, consolidate grades, update transcripts, visit with recruiters from colleges and universities, conduct field trips, provide financial aid assistance, make summer school program referrals, assist with graduation, follow up on academic, discipline and attendance progress and work in collaboration with the JEHS staff and administration to provide our child with the best education and support services.
Diana Alejos is the migrant counselor on our campus. Parents are encouraged to contact Ms. Alejos at(956)289-2450 ext. 7020 for any questions pertaining to student supplemental services, support services or student progress.Noelia Alaniz is our J.E.H.S.

Attention Migrant Students:

You can pick up school supplies from migrant staff in the guidance office. We have paper, pencils, pens, notebooks, spirals, etc.  Teachers are encouraged to send migrant students for supplies if they notice that the students do not have any.

Credit Recovery Program

Migrant students who are needing to recover high school credits need to visit with Mrs. Alejos to sign up for the CTCOHS Lab.  If you are behind one or two years and would like to earn credits for courses you have failed, this program is right for you. There is no limit on the number of credits you can earn. It is a self-paced program and students who are serious about working independently are encouraged to sign up.

Students with blocked credits due to attendance issues, please see Ms. Marisol Abrego in room # 170.  You will be required to attend tutorials after school or on Saturdays.
