Migrant Department

Welcome to the JEHS Migrant Program!


The program was designed to help meet the needs of our J.E.H.S. 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 include, but are not limited to: student and parent orientation, individual and group counseling, migrant parent meetings, Credit by Exam (local), AP and TSI testing, consolidation of grades, updating transcripts, college and university visits and recruitment, assistance with the FAFSA (Free Application for Student Aid Application), summer school programs referrals (MUSE, Edgenuity and Regular Summer School), the Annual Migrant College Career and Military Readiness Workshop, PFS Leadership Seminars, follow up on academics, discipline and attendance reports and collaborate with the J.E.H.S. staff and administration to help migrant students succeed.


Diana Alejos is the migrant counselor on our campus. She organizes, plans and coordinates all migrant program activities with the help of her secretary, Noelia Alaniz. 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. This year will be the first year that JEHS will have a Priority for Service (PFS) incentive program geared to provide incentives for those students who are needing the most help with grades, attendance, discipline, tutorials, and emotional support. The Plan for Success (PFS) for JEHS migrant PFS students will be implemented to ensure that every migrant student stays focused on making positive strides to improve in academics, this in turn, will encourage the migrant student to attend a college or a university of his choice. The objective is to show migrant students how they can stop the migrant way of life and provide for their future families by paying more attention to their academics.


Noelia Alaniz is our J.E.H.S. Migrant Secretary. She works closely with Ms. Alejos to make sure that the program activities run smoothly and that all paperwork required is completed and turned in on a timely manner. She also assists in providing information to parents and students when necessary. Michael Martinez is our JEHS migrant recruiter and New Generation Systems clerk. You may wish to see the migrant recruiter if you have any questions about your eligibility and/or migrant status. Mary Rodriguez is our new Secondary Credit Accrual and New Generation Systems Clerk. She assists students with grade transfers, grade inputting, which involves collecting and inputting grades, vaccine records, state assessment scores and student activities. She works very closely with the migrant counselor and registrars for accuracy of data. The New Generation System is depended on by participating states for quick access of our students’ up to date information needed when our students seek to attend school out of state.


The Edgenuity Lab, which is used for credit recovery and credit advancement will be managed by Mr. Guadalupe Villanueva, teacher, with the help of his classroom assistant, Ms. Sonia Alvarado.
