Migrant Education Program National Identification and Recruitment Manual

The Office of Migrant Education (OME) published the Migrant Education Program (MEP) National ID&R Manual in order 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.

This manual was revised in the Fall of 2017 to reflect changes to the program enacted in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
