Migrant Education Program
The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is authorized by Part C of Title I of the Elementary Secondary Education Act. The MEP provides formula grants to establish or improve education programs for migrant children. The general purpose of the 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 helps address the special educational needs of migrant children to succeed academically. Services are provided to improve educational opportunities for migrant children to help them succeed in the regular school program, meet the challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards that all children are expected to meet, and graduate from high school. Supportive services are provided to ensure the special needs are coordinated. Programs are designed 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 postsecondary education or employment.
