Migrant Program

The purpose of the Migrant Education Program (MEP) is to ensure that migrant children fully benefit from the same free public education provided to other children. To achieve this purpose, the MEP addresses the special educational needs of all migrant children to better enable children to succeed academically. More specifically, the purpose of the MEP is to:

->Support high-quality and comprehensive educational programs for migrant children in order to reduce the educational disruption and other problems that result from repeated moves;

->Ensure that migrant children who move among the States are not penalized in any manner by disparities among the States in curriculum, graduation requirements, and State academic content and student academic achievement standards;

->Ensure that migrant children are provided with appropriate opportunities to meet the same challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards that all children are expected to meet;

->Design programs to help migrant children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various, health-related problems and other factors that inhibit their ability to do well in school, and to prepare them to make a successful transition to post-secondary education or employment; and

->Ensure that migrant children benefit from State and local systemic reforms.
 
A child qualifies for migrant services if they:
 
  • Are under the age of 22 years of age 
  • Do not have a U.S. issued diploma or GED 
  • Have moved within the last six months across school district or state lines with a parent or on his/her own to obtain qualifying migratory work
 
Migratory work refers to temporary or seasonal employment in fishing work or agricultural work, including the production of initial processing of crops, livestock, dairy products, and fish, as well as the cultivation and harvesting of trees. The Migrant Program offers a variety of supplemental academic and support services to meet the educational and health needs of migrant children.
