MIGRANT EDUCATION

The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federally-funded program designed to ensure that migrant children fully benefit from the same free public education provided to all children and that the unmet education-related needs resulting from their migrant lifestyle are met.

Each year, we distribute the Parent Occupation Survey, which helps us identify those children who may be identified as “migrant.”  These are children who are likely to move in and out of the community due to parents’ employment in agricultural jobs that require seasonal moves.

Questions about Schley County’s Migrant Education Program may be directed to the Migrant Ed. Coordinator at the Schley County Board of Education (229) 937-2405.
