The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federally funded Title I program since 1966 with the amendment of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. MEP or Title I, Part C was reauthorized under the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

Under this contract, we provide supplemental support services for a population of students whose parents or the students themselves are employed doing migratory work in the agricultural or fishing industries. The program offers high-quality and comprehensive educational programs and services during the school year, and as applicable, during the summer or intersession periods, that address the unique educational needs of migratory children.
