The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federally funded program designed to provide supplementary educational and support services to children and youth of migrant families, ages 3-21. Migrant Education provides educational/instructional, health, preschool, parent education, and outreach services to eligible families.
A child/youth qualifies for the Migrant Education Program if their parents work in agriculture, fishing, or logging activities, and have moved the family across district boundaries in the last three years to seek/obtain work in the above mentioned industries. Families may have their eligibility for participation in the Migrant Education Program reviewed by Migrant Education by submitting their student’s name, the parent/guardian name(s), and contact information to the front office of their school. Migrant Education will then contact the family and determine eligibility.
