To impact teaching and learning in K-12 classrooms so that migrant students achieve high academic success.
The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federally funded, state-operated program under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) that provides supplemental program services to the children, ages 3 through 21, of seasonal or temporary agricultural workers. In Arizona, the program delivers services primarily through local educational agencies (LEAS) that design programs to meet the unserved needs of children residing in their area. To facilitate broader services, some provisions are delivered through statewide models which, in particular, are designed to meet the credit accrual and informational needs for students.
