Welcome to the Migrant Education Program (MEP) Department
The goal of the Migrant Education Program (MEP) is to design supplemental action plans that help all migrant students overcome the educational disruption, challenges of mobility, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems and other factors associated with a migratory lifestyle to succeed in school and successfully transition to postsecondary education or employment.
The Migrant Director coordinates with each campus principal and migrant personnel to accomplish programs' goals (identify and recruit migrant students, offer early childhood education, graduate migrant students within their cohort group, involve migrant parents in their children's education, ensure credit exchange and accrual, and facilitate inter and intrastate student information.) Campus visits are conducted and documented. Provide resources, staff development, and technical assistance regarding the implementation of effective Migrant Services.
The purpose of Title I, Part C is to:
- To assist States in supporting high-quality and comprehensive educational programs and services during the school year and, as applicable, during summer or intersession periods, that address the unique educational needs of migratory children.
- Ensure that migratory children who move among the States are not penalized in any manner by disparities among the State in curriculum, graduation requirements and State academic content and student academic achievement standards;
- To ensure that migratory children receive full and appropriate opportunities to meet the same challenging State academic standards that all children are expected to meet;
- To help migratory children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that inhibit the ability of such children to succeed in school;
- To help migratory children benefit from State and local systemic reforms. (P.L. 114-95, Sec. 1301).
