- Did the child move within the past 36 months?
- Was the move over 20 miles from home, or across school district lines?
- Did the child spend at least seven nights away from home on their moves over the course of a year?
- Was the purpose of the move for the child or guardian to obtain work that was both seasonal/temporary AND fishing or berry-picking related?
- Was the work an important part of providing a living for the worker and his/her family?
