Our Primary Goal

The primary goal of the Migrant Education Program (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 further learning, productive employment, and to be responsible community members.

The Shenandoah Valley Migrant Education Program (SVMEP) is one of 6 regional programs of the Virginia Migrant Education Program. It is a federal Title I, part C program that is state-administered by the Office of Program Administration and Accountability at the Virginia Department of Education.

The Shenandoah Valley MEP serves the public school systems in the cities of Harrisonburg and Winchester and the counties of Clarke, Frederick, Fauquier, Rockingham, and Shenandoah. Our team includes 3 year-round, bilingual (Spanish/English) Migrant Student Advocates, several work-study student employees and over 40 trained volunteer tutors.
