The Migrant Education Program (MEP) supports students to reach high standards of academic achievement and is the level of interstate cooperation through the transfer of migrant students' education and health records. This high priority activity helps assure that migrant students are placed appropriately when they enroll in a new school. Their teachers are able to meet their needs and valuable time is not wasted. In addition, secondary students benefit significantly since the transfer of credits and/or partial credits assists them in meeting graduation requirements. The dropout rate among migrant students is high because of the frustration and hopelessness these students encounter when schools are not able to meet their academic needs.
Title I, Part D provides funds for youth in state-operated institutions or community day programs. It also provides assistance to school districts who work with local correctional facilities. Colorado receives formula funds based on the number of students in state institutions and costs per pupil.
