The Migrant Education Program is a federally funded program designed to provide supplementary educational and support services to children and youth of migrant families, ages 3-21. In order for a child/youth to qualify for the program, his/her parents need to work in agriculture, fishing or logging activities, and the family has to move from one school district to another during the period of three years, with the purpose of seeking work in the industries mentioned above. These students need to be enrolled in the Migrant Education Program (MEP) through the completion of a certificate of eligibility. MEP personnel usually do this through a home visit.
