Southeastern Kentucky Migrant Education Program

Southeastern Kentucky Migrant Education Program

(SEKY MEP)

The Migrant Education Program is a supplemental education program that provides support for migrant children and their families. This program works to ensure that the appropriate academic services are offered to help migrant children do well in school and that they receive the needed levels of tutoring and instruction that will promote them to the next grade level. Migrant Education staff works with other school and community agencies to provide social and health needs that families may require.

To be eligible for the program, children ages 3 through 21 must have moved with their families from one school district to another to do various types of agriculture work.
