Migrant Education Program (MEP) National Profile for Performance Period 2021-2022

The Migrant Education Program (MEP) National Profile for Performance Period 2021-2022 shows data reported in the Migrant Student Information Exchange (MSIX), the nationwide electronic records exchange system under Title I, Part C, of the ESEA, as amended. The intended audience of the National Profile is the Office of Migrant Education’s (OME) grantees. It provides a snapshot of key information used to inform the decision-making about the National MEP.

The MEP’s national goal is to:

  1. Assist States in supporting high-quality and comprehensive educational programs and services during the school year and, as applicable, during the summer or intersession periods that address the unique educational needs of migratory children.
  2. Ensure that migratory children who move among the States are not penalized in any manner by disparities among the States in curriculum, graduation requirements, and State academic content and student academic achievement standards.
  3. Ensure that migratory children receive full and appropriate opportunities to meet the same challenging State academic standards that all children are expected to meet.
  4. Help migratory children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that inhibit the ability of such children to succeed in school.
  5. Help migratory children benefit from State and local systemic reforms. (Section 1301 of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESEA), as amended)

Select indicators from the report are included below. Several additional indicators as well as the methodology behind each is available in the full report download.

National Child Counts for National Profile

The table shows the National unduplicated count of eligible migratory children age birth through 21 as determined on 12/24/2022. It should be noted that due to the difference in logic used to determine inclusion and eligibility, the count of eligible migratory children will not be equal to the sum of the Category 1 and Age Birth through 2 children.

Eligible Migratory Children Age Birth Through 21

Total MEP Population (Table 1)

Below are how many migratory children in each Grade Level group are eligible, enrolled in a MEP-Funded Project, and enrolled in a MEP-Funded Summer/Intersession Project.

Total Priority for Service (PFS) Count (Table 2a)

The figure below exhibits the national MEP Population age birth through 21 by Priority for Services (PFS) status.

Total English Learner (EL) Count (Table 3a)

The figure below depicts the national MEP Population age birth through 21 by English Learner (EL) status.

Total Individualized Education Program (IEP/IDEA) Count (Table 4a)

The figure below depicts the national MEP Population age birth through 21 by Individualized Education Program (IEP) status.

Children with Qualifying Arrival Dates (QADs) During the Performance Period (Table 5a)

Below shows an unduplicated count of children by State who made an interstate or intrastate move that generated a QAD in the performance period as reported by either the Move To or Move From State. Regardless of the amount of moves a child made within a State, the child will only be counted once per State. When a State reports a move where they are not the Move To or Move From State, the QAD is not counted in this table.

National MEP Performance Measure 3 – Percentage of Students in Grades 7-12 Graduated or Promoted (Table 7)

Below depicts the MEP Performance Measure 3 the percentage of MEP students who were enrolled in grades seven through twelve and graduated or were promoted to the next grade level. Please note that children in Grade 12 who were promoted from Grade 11 and graduated or received their HSED are counted twice.

National MEP Performance Measure 4 – Percentage of Students in Grade 11 with Credit for Algebra 1 or Its Equivalent (Table 8)

Below depicts the percentage of MEP students who entered 11th grade that had received full credit for Algebra I or its equivalent. This is Performance Measure 4.
