The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federally funded, state-operated program under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) that provides supplemental services to the children, ages 3 through 21, of seasonal or temporary agricultural workers in Arizona.  The program also provides other benefits such as free school breakfast and lunch, school supplies and Priority for Services for children of migrant families that changed schools during the past 12 months or have missed more than 10 days of school in one month due to the child’s migratory lifestyle.  A migrant family may qualify for program services if  they work in the agriculture fields, dairies, canneries, nurseries etc. For more information on our district's program please call our Regional Migrant Recruiter.
