 Georgia MEP Measurable Program Outcomes (MPOs)


It was important for the current CNA to address the needs of migrant participants through measurable state Measurable Program Outcomes (MPOs) in order to evaluate the effectiveness of project plans implemented and services provided by LEAs/ Georgia MEP Consortium. The goals were drafted within the seven areas of concern and the four goal areas[1] established by OME, as well as the concern statements developed during the current CNA process and the results gathered from the surveys distributed. Thus, the Georgia MEP was responsible for drafting the new state MPOs and after sharing them with MEP staff, regional and state CNA stakeholders, and Parent Advisory Council (PAC) members, they were unanimously approved for implementation. The new state goals presented hereinafter are:

MPO 1: The Georgia Migrant Education Program will improve school readiness by providing age-appropriate at-home or facility-based projects focused on early literacy and mathematics.  Improvement will be measured by district-level implementation plans (IP) showing an incremental 5% point growth/improvement for students served during the academic year and summer.

MPO 2: The Georgia Migrant Education Program will provide OSY and DO projects and services at the individual and group level based on needs outlined in the OSY and DO profile.  Progress will be measured by district-level implementation plans (IP) showing an incremental 5% point growth/improvement for OSY and DO served during the academic year and summer.

MPO 3: Migratory students in elementary, middle and high school will meet or exceed proficiency in Reading within the framework of the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) for Reading as measured by district-level implementation plans (IP) showing an incremental 5% point growth/improvement for students served during the academic year and summer.

MPO 4:  Migratory students in elementary, middle and high school will improve their writing proficiency within the framework of  the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) for Writing as measured by district-level implementation plans (IP) showing an incremental 5% point growth/improvement for students served during the academic year and summer.    growth/improvement for students served during the academic year.

MPO 5: Migratory students in elementary, middle and high school will improve their Mathematics proficiency within the framework of  the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) for Math as measured by district-level implementation plans (IP) showing an incremental 5% point growth/improvement for students served during the academic year.


OME’s list of seven areas of concern unique to migrant students include: educational continuity; instructional time; school engagement; English language development; educational support in the home; health; and access to services. Additionally, the following four goals for migrant children were originally established by the Office of Migrant Education (OME): School Readiness; Reading Proficiency; Mathematics Proficiency and; High School Graduation.
