The Migrant Regional Center 5 (MRC5) administers a grant under the Title I, Part C Migrant Education Program (MEP) to support high quality education programs for migratory children (ages 3-21). The MEP is designed to help migratory children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that inhibit the ability of such children to do well in school, and to prepare such children to make a successful transition to post secondary education or employment.
MRC5 coordinates the Migrant Education Program in 26 counties in southeastern Indiana. A map of our region can be found here.
Typical activities conducted by MRC5 to support migrant children:
- Provide after school tutoring
- Deliver summer school
- Integrate future ready technology for in-home and at-school use
- Refer families to support service agencies, including health, workforce development, food/clothing shelters
