Education of Migratory Children  School kids

The Migrant Education Program (MEP) ensures that migratory students fully benefit from the services provided by Montgomery Public Schools. The program addresses the special needs of each migrant student to better enable the student to succeed academically. Available supportive initiatives may include tutoring, counseling, provision of academic materials, emergency medical treatment, and preschool services. The program offers opportunities for migrant youth education through extended day programs to help them succeed in the regular school program. The MEP also focuses on providing parental involvement and support training for parents of migrant children.

It is the purpose of the Migrant Education Program to ----

(1) support high-quality and comprehensive educational programs for migratory children to help reduce the educational disruptions and other problems that result from repeated moves;

(2) ensure that migratory children are provided with appropriate educational services (including supportive services) that address their special needs in a coordinated and efficient manner; and

(3) ensure that migratory children receive full and appropriate opportunities to meet the same challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards that all children are expected to meet.
