Identification and Recruitment Importance
Why is it so important to identify and recruit all eligible
migratory children, families, and youth?
• Children and youth cannot receive MEP services without a
certificate of eligibility (COE) a recruiter has completed and
the State has accepted.
• The longer it takes to find a migratory child and determine
the child to be eligible, the longer it will take to provide the
child with MEP services.
