Migrant Education Program

 

The Migrant Education Program provides supplemental and support services to eligible students. The primary purpose of the MEP is to ensure that all migrant students reach challenging academic standards and graduate with a high school diploma (or complete a GED) that prepares them for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment. 

What They Do:  

 

The MEP ensures that children of migratory farm workers have access to the same free, appropriate public school education that is provided to other children. It seeks to remove barriers to school enrollment, attendance, and achievement of migrant children.
