Migrant Education Program

The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is authorized under Title I, Part C of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965, reauthorized in 2015 as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
The purpose of the MEP is to meet the unique education needs of migratory children and their families to ensure that migrant students reach challenging academic standards and graduate high school. Specifically, the goal of the Migrant Education program is to help migratory children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, health-related problems, and other factors inhibiting migratory children from doing well in school and making the transition to postsecondary education or employment.
Services offered to migrant children and their families may include:
• Supplemental academic programs
• Health programs
• Family home visiting and academic counseling
• Parental involvement
• Migrant student data and collection
• Student leadership opportunities
• Summer school programs
• Secondary credit accrual and exchange
• Dissemination of information
The Sunnyside School District Migrant Education program is proud to offer additional academic support and other events for migratory children and social support to their parents.
