Maine Migrant Education Program

The Maine Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federally-funded program under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (Title I, Part C) that provides supplemental educational services to the children of seasonal agricultural and fishing workers that move to new school districts in order to obtain work in industries such as blueberries, broccoli, apples, dairy, eggs tree tipping, fish processing and countless more. The Maine MEP is operated from the Maine Department of Education, but we work with community agencies all over the state to identify potential students and to make sure we pursue all potential leads. The UMaine Cooperative Extension has been exceptionally helpful in the past, due to the widespread nature of the program and many avenues of communication it has.
