About us

The migrant education program is a national program that provides educational and support services to eligible migrant each year. These services help children of migrant workers overcome the disadvantages they face: Inadequate living space, low incomes, interruption to their education, etc. The Texas MEP staff provides the coordination of these resources, which include the following:

  • Identification and Recruitment of Migratory Children in Texas
  • Collection and Exchange of Data through the use of the New Generation System (NGS) Database and Collaboration with other States Involved in the NGS Consortia;
  • Migrant Parent Advisory Council (PAC)
  • Project SMART “Making Mathematics Meaningful” Summer Migrant Program; and
  • Texas Migrant Interstate Program (TMIP)
