Title I, Part C, Migrant Education Program 

The purpose of the Migrant Education Program (MEP) is to design and support programs that help migrant students overcome the challenges of mobility, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, and other difficulties associated with a migratory lifestyle. These efforts are aimed at helping migrant students succeed in school and successfully transition to post-secondary education and/or employment. 

The purpose of this program is to:

  1. support high-quality and comprehensive educational programs and services during the school year and, as applicable, during summer or intersession periods, that address the unique educational needs of migratory children;

  2. ensure that migratory children who move among the States are not penalized in any manner by disparities among the States in curriculum, graduation requirements, and challenging State academic standards;

  3. ensure that migratory children receive full and appropriate opportunities to meet the same challenging State academic standards that all children are expected to meet;

  4. to help migratory children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that inhibit the ability of such children to succeed in school; and

  5. help migratory children benefit from State and local systemic reforms.

It is the responsibility of the ESC to provide training and technical assistance to migrant project districts to assist them in meeting program requirements and program effectiveness. The identification and recruitment of eligible migrant students in non-project migrant districts are also the responsibility of Region 10's Migrant Education Program.
