Student Count Information

Count of Immigrant Children and Youth, 2022

The State Education Department annually collects the number of "immigrant children and youth," as defined by Section 3301(6) of ESEA, present in New York State. The information is used each year by the Department to determine each local educational agency's (LEA's) eligibility and allocation for the Title III, Part A Immigrant Education program.  As a result, each LEA must count and report the number of "immigrant children and youth" currently enrolled in the public and nonpublic schools in the geographic area under the jurisdiction of, or served by, the LEA.
