Migrant Education Program

April 13, 2021

Dear Migrant Parents and Families,

It has not been a normal start of the school year and we are sure you all already know that. This has been a learning experience for all of us. Please know that the Migrant Education Program (MEP) at the Moses Lake School District is here to continue to help you navigate through this.

We had planned to have a Fall Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) meeting back in October but with no afterschool and after-hours activities, we are in the works again for a different approach for you and your family.

We at the district are busy working on putting together a Personal Protective Equipment bag. Please complete the Survey (below). Then you may obtain a PPE bag at the Learning Services Center (1620 S. Pioneer Way) on April 15, 2021 at 5:00-6:00PM. We are planning to have a “Drive By PAC Meeting” and are excited to see you all.

We are happy to have Brianna back and want to thank Blanca Zamora for an outstanding job and continued support to our District and Migrant Families.

VERY IMPORTANT POINT! When you receive calls, we would like to ask a favor of you, that when you receive phone calls from the district, please listen to the entire message before you hang up. Messages are and will be repeated in Spanish. Remember we are here to help you, your children, and all of our Migrant Families. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We sincerely hope that this will be of value and of great help to all of you.

 
 
ABOUT THE MIGRANT EDUCATION PROGRAM
 
The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is authorized under Title I, Part C of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965, reauthorized in 2015 as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The purpose of the MEP is to meet the unique educational needs of migratory children and their families to ensure that migrant students reach challenging academic standards and graduate high school.
 

Specifically, the goal of the Migrant Education program is to help migratory children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, health-related problems, and other factors inhibiting migratory children from doing well in school and making the transition to postsecondary education or employment. The Moses Lake School District Migrant Education program is proud to offer additional academic support and other events for migratory children and social support to their parents.
