migrant educationTitle I Part C Montana Migrant Education Program

The Migrant Education Program is a national federally funded program that annually provides supplemental education and supportive services to thousands of eligible migrant children across the country so that they may overcome educational disruptions and disadvantages resulting from their parents’ or their own seasonal or temporary work in agriculture, fishing or timber-related employment.

The Migrant Education Program grew out of Title 1 of Public Law 89-10, passed in 1965, to assist all disadvantaged children. Since migrant children have specific needs, they require special help and services. Thus, the Migrant Education Program was established separately by an amendment to Title 1 in 1966.

The Goal of the Montana Migrant Education Program (MEP) is to provide leadership to the field regarding programs and services that promote academic excellence and equity for the migrant students of Montana. To achieve this goal, the Montana MEP strives to create conditions which empower educators working with migrant children to collaborate in designing programs which build upon student strengths, eliminate barriers, provide continuity of education, and produce levels of performance for migrant students that meet or exceed those of the general student population. Parental involvement is viewed as an essential part of the educational process, and home-school-community partnerships provide the support necessary to improve student achievement.
