Massachusetts Migrant Education Program
The Massachusetts Migrant Education Program (MMEP) is a federally funded program of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. MMEP provides supplemental educational opportunities to the children of migratory agricultural workers, migratory fisherman and out of school youth. The program serves migrant children who reside in over 30 communities located throughout the Commonwealth. The program’s major components include regional Family Support Projects that provide migrant students with extended learning opportunities such as:
- Homework assistance and tutoring;
- Educational programs for out of school youth;
- Parent empowerment and family literacy services;
- Student and family advocacy; outreach and recruitment services; and,
- Summer services that provide language development instruction and academic enrichment during a six week summer program.
In order to find out if you are eligible for this program, you will need to fill out this form (link to pdf) and either return it to your child’s school or to the Parent Information Center (PIC). You can also obtain a copy of the form from the PIC.
