Migrant Education Program
The Migrant Education Program provides supplemental and support services to eligible students. The primary purpose of the MEP is to ensure that all Migrant Students reach challenging academic standards and graduate with a high school diploma (or complete a GED) that prepares them for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment. The MEP ensures that children of migratory farm workers have access to the same free, appropriate public school education that is provided to other children. It seeks to remove barriers to school enrollment, attendance, and achievement of migrant children.

Several Greeley-Evans School District 6 students attended the Summer Migrant Youth Leadership Institute (SMYLI). This is an event for migrant students starting the 9th grade up to the beginning the 12th grade of high school from across Colorado. The purpose of the institute is to motivate and empower migrant students to reach their educational goals and increase their potential as leaders in their schools and communities. Please watch the video to see what they experienced.
