The Office of Migrant Education at the Colorado Department of Education, is federally funded under Title I, Part C of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The Migrant Education Program (MEP) provides supplemental support to eligible migrant children and youth. The purpose of the program is to ensure that migratory children are not penalized in any manner by disparities among curriculum, graduation requirements, academic content and student academic achievement standards, and ensure that migratory children are provided with appropriate educational services and opportunities so they can succeed in school and graduate from high school being postsecondary education or employment ready.
CSI schools assist in identifying students who are eligible for the program by completing a migrant student survey and submitting it to CSI. Schools may be directly contacted by CDE Migrant Regional Contacts.
