about the Identification and Recruitment Manual.
As part of the Office of Migrant Education (OME) Identification and Recruitment (ID&R) Initiative, the Migrant Education Program (MEP) ID&R manual is intended to provide examples, advice and tools to support state education agencies and local operating agencies in determining how best to identify and recruit eligible migrant children consistent with legal requirements. Administrator and Recruiter checklists, “Lessons Learned” prepared by seasoned ID&R staff, and tips from MEP staff are included to assist in developing effective state ID&R systems for the MEP.
Nutrition Education and Programs for Migrant Students
It is hard to comprehend that the very same families, who harvest food across the country, often times lack the very nutrition they help provide to others. The provision of meaningful nutrition education and access to nutritional programs is a valuable support service for migrant students. Good nutrition not only affects their success in school, but also their long-term health and well-being of each individual.
