US Department of Education
States use Migrant Education Program (MEP) funds to ensure that migrant children are provided with appropriate services that address the special needs caused by the effects of continual educational disruption. MEP services are usually delivered by schools, districts and/or other public or private organizations and can be instructional (reading, mathematics other language arts, etc.) or supporting (social work, health, dental, etc.). This report summarizes the participation information provided by state education agencies (SEAs) on the Migrant Education Program (MEP) for the 1999-2000 school year, the 16th year that SEAs were required to submit information using the State Performance Report. The report is organized into two sections: (1) an overall descriptive summary of Title I MEP participation and staffing; and (2) individual state profiles. Appended are: (1) States Not Providing MEP Services by Term and by Year; (2) Other Instructional Services Provided by States by Term; (3) Other Supporting Services Provided by States by Term; and (4) Glossary. (Contains 32 tables and 9 figures.) [Document produced by the Policy and Program Studies Service.]
