Information


The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federally funded program, whose focus is to identify and provide academic supports for those students whose education is interrupted by migratory work.  Our goal is to ensure our students are safe, responsible, and prepared in their education as well as daily life.

Benefits

Some benefits for students include:

  •  Academic Support Services
  • Free School Lunch Program
  • Book Fair Vouchers
  • Water Safety/Swim Passes
  • Free PFDs
  • Kindles
  • and more

Duration

Once a student is eligible, they can receive benefits for 3 years.  However, each year a Migrant Education Program staff member will be contacting you to update your eligibility for each school year thereby extending the eligibility period.


Qualifications

Students and their families, who travel  across school district boundaries to participate in seasonal subsistence or commercial fishing, to participate in berry picking, or to work in the agriculture or logging industry, and were away from home for a combined total of 8 days and 7 nights, may be eligible.  Eligible youth must be under 20 years old but are not required to be registered in a school.  Therefore, preschoolers, homeschoolers, and out of school youth are also eligible if they have not graduated.
