    Migrant Education Program (MEP)
    The goal of the Migrant Education Program is to ensure that all migratory students reach challenging academic standards and graduate with a high school diploma that prepares them for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment.  This federally funded program supports high-quality education programs for migrant children that move among districts/states and helps to ensure that these students are not generalized in any manner by disparities in curriculum, graduation requirements or state academic content and student academic achievement standards.
