It is cherry harvest season in Polson, Mont., which brings an influx of migrant workers and their children. To help keep the children sharp academically, Polson School District #23 offers them extra support, especially in math. "Because migrant workers have to go where the crops are, most kids will start [school] late and leave before the year is over. So there are gaps in their education," Tim Berg, special services and migrant education director, said. "Math [especially] is something that's easy to get behind in," he added.
