The Migrant Education
Program is authorized under Part C of Title I of the Elementary and
Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended. Only a State
educational agency (SEA) may receive a Title I, Migrant Education
Program grant from the U. S. Department of Education. However,
public agencies or private nonprofit organizations, including
institutions of higher education, may participate in the program
through subgrants or contracts with SEAs.
State law sets out the administrative framework
for delivering MEP services that focus on meeting the needs of the
students that emerge as a result of their mobility.
