State opens investigation into Nyssa’s Migrant Education Program

NYSSA ­– State officials are investigating the Migrant Education Program at the Nyssa School District after finding “irregularities” that disqualified 19 out of a sample 100 families participating.

The program is intended to ensure children in migrant families can get an education.

The Oregon Department of Education notified school district officials in March that it was removing those 19 families from the program. The number of children represented by those families couldn’t be established as the Education Department kept a tight lid on information.

Darren Johnson, Nyssa school superintendent, told the Enterprise Thursday that state officials haven’t shared much . . .
