Migrant Education

6601 Indian Mound Drive Mount Sterling, KY 40353


The Migrant Education Program (MEP) provides supplemental educational and support services to migratory children. The Migrant Education Program assists local schools with improving and coordinating the educational continuity for the children of migratory farm workers who have had their schooling interrupted. We work in close collaboration with schools, intermediate units, and community agencies to help migratory children meet the same high standards expected of all children by coordinating and supporting services that sustain and accelerate their progress in school.
