North Carolina MEP is again a member of a consortium working on Strategies, Opportunities, and Services for Out of School Youth, or SOSOSY. This is a Consortium Incentive Grant funded by the Office of Migrant Education. The consortium develops materials and training for programs advocating for and serving out-of-school youth. The SOSOSY website is at http://www.osymigrant.org.
Parents are children’s first teachers, and often just need some training to do a fabulous job of preparing their children for success in elementary school. East Coast Migrant Head Start is sponsoring training in family literacy strategies for Migrant Education Program staff from several counties. These staff members will become trainers in family literacy and be able to train other MEP staff and parents throughout the state.
Service Delivery Plan Updated
The Service Delivery Plan serves as a "shop manual" for running a Migrant Education Program in North Carolina. The most recent document is now posted on this website in the Staff Resources-Supplemental Services section. The document highlights findings of our Comprehensive Needs Assessment and lays out goals for programs, along with Measurable Program Objectives and strategies.
