Electronic devices help with a lesson led by Lorraine Richins as she conducts a class during the Migrant Education Program, which wrapped up last week. The program marked its return to the Mountain Home School District after a 10-year absence.

An education program aimed at helping children in the Mountain Home area improve their reading and math skills returned this month following a 10-year absence.

Held weekdays from June 5 to 29, the Migrant Education Program included 47 children ranging in age from three years old to those preparing to enter sixth grade along with three high school-age students.

The federally funded program supports educational programs for migratory children to reduce the impact of academic disruptions from repeated moves, according to officials with the local school district.
