The Title I, Part C / Migrant Education Program (MEP) funds supplemental educational programs for migrant children (ages 0-21). Migrant students have the same risk factors as other students. These students also face further challenges because of their frequent moves. The goal of the Migrant Education Program 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.
Who is a Migrant Student?
- A child between the ages of 3 and 21
- Has not completed high school or earned a high school equivalent certificate.
- Has moved across school district lines on his own, or to join a family member who is an agricultural or fishing worker.
- Has moved within the last 36 months.
The Migrant Education Program ensures that migrant students do not face additional educational challenges due to the differences in academic standards throughout the country. The program also promotes the coordination of educational and support services including the timely transfer of academic records.
