Migrant Education

Pennsylvania's Migrant Education Program (PA-MEP) is a federally funded program that supplements educational support services for migratory children. The PA-MEP assists school districts and charter schools in coordinating the continuity of educational services for children who have had their schooling interrupted, and provides formula grants to state educational agencies to establish or improve education programs for migrant children.
