Migrant Education Program

Education of Migratory Children

The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federally-funded program designed to support comprehensive educational programs for migrant children to help reduce the educational disruption and other problems that result from repeated moves. Irwin County serves eligible migrant students ages 3-22. Eligible students are identified by the completed Occupational Survey and family interview. Upon eligibility, students are served with academic tutoring and support services as needed by Student Support Providers. Irwin County is a direct-funded county and belongs to Region 2 in the MEP.
