Migrant Education Program (MEP)

The general purpose of the Migrant Education Program (MEP) is to ensure that migrant children fully benefit from the same free public education provided to other children. To achieve this purpose, the MEP helps State Educational Agencies and local operating agencies address the unique educational needs of migrant children to better enable migrant children to succeed academically.
As of April 2020, there are 764 students in the Migrant Education Program in Ontario School District - about one-third of our student population.  To be eligible for the Migrant Program, a student must have moved within the past 36 months and from another district. The move had to have been made to find temporary or seasonal agricultural work.

What is a PAC?
The Migrant Education Program has a Parent Advisory Council (PAC) that is made up of a group of parents who represent each school in our district.  The PAC serves to provide feedback on school policies and procedures that our Migrant Education Program provides to their students.  If you are interested in becoming a PAC member for the 2020-2021 school year, please call, Angela Salazar, at (541) 889-5374 for more information.
¿Qué es un PAC?
El Programa de Educación Migrante tiene un Consejo Asesor de Padres (PAC) que está compuesto por un grupo de padres que representan a cada escuela en nuestro distrito.  El PAC sirve para proporcionar comentarios sobre las políticas y procedimientos escolares que nuestro Program proporciona a sus estudiantes.  Si está interesado en ser un miembro de PAC para el año escolar de 2020-2021, llame a Angela Salazar at (541) 889-5374 para obtener más información.
