Migrant Education Program
Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federally-funded supplemental
program designed to serve the unique educational and support service
needs of Migrant students ages 3 - 21. Region 17 identifies over 7,000
Migrant students in 33 Project Districts and 24 Non-Project Districts.
Migrant Education Program is authorized under Part C of Title I of the
No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. The goal of the MEP is to insure that
all migrant students reach the same high state content and performance
standards that all students are expected to reach. In Texas,
supplemental academic and support services are provided within Seven
Areas of Focus to students who meet the program eligibility definition.
Programs and services are designed to help migratory children overcome
educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social
isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that
inhibit the ability of such children to do well in school. The purpose
of these services is to prepare migratory children to make a successful
transition to postsecondary education or employment; and to ensure that
migratory children benefit from State and local systemic reforms.
goal of the Tahoka ISD is to improve the educational opportunities,
academic success and equity of all migrant students through programs and
eligible migrant student is one who has crossed school district lines
during the past three years so that the student, a parent or other
member of the immediate family may seek employment in agricultural or
fishing related activities.
