Your district’s MEP recruiter may also:
Provide information about services and supports available to migratory students, including access to free hot lunches at school;
Explain how to complete any back-to-school forms or surveys; and
Assist with access to the list of school supplies and other resources.
Stay Connected with your MEP Recruiter
As migratory parents and families, you should let your MEP recruiter know of any migratory move you or your family made over the summer. This will help ensure your children remain eligible for services and support for as long as possible.
In addition, when your family is considering making a migratory move during the school year, please reach out to your MEP recruiter. Your district MEP staff will send a move notification to the district you are moving to, which will assist with the enrollment process for your children and ensure they continue to receive MEP services at their new location.
The Migrant Family Hotline supports Texas families moving within and outside of Texas and offers information, resources, and support.
