2013 Georgia MEP Summer Programs

Summer programs are a pivotal element of Migrant Education Program (MEP)supplemental services. The summer time provides immense opportunities to extend learning and bridge any gaps caused by high mobility patterns and academic disruption during the regular school year. Additionally, services dedicated to out-of-school youth and dropouts increase during this time, providing a pathway for project plans from local educational agencies, community organizations, post-secondary educational institutions, and the state Migrant Education Program.
