The Migrant Education Program
The Migrant Education Program (MEP) is funded through Title I, Part C of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 and awarded through the Office of Language, Culture, and Equity in the Colorado Department of Education. Centenial BOCES is also home to the Northern Region Secondary Migrant Program.
McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act
Partnering school districts, Centennial BOCES and the Colorado Department of Education collaborate on this federal act to create lasting solutions by stabilizing our students' academic and social success.
More than 1,000 students without stable homes from the grades of pre-k through high school/GED are engaged in this program. Services range from a holistic approach of high quality professional development, on-site consultation with district staff and students, community resource development and delivery, as well as counseling and solution-focused problem solving with students/families in transition as they confront educational and social barriers.
The Federal Programs Department administers a variety of federal, state, and privately funded grants. We serve school districts in the north, central, and northeast regions of Colorado.
Having the largest Migrant Education Program in the state, we partner with dozens of school districts to address the unique educational needs of students whose education is disrupted because of high mobility. Remaining solution-focused, our McKinney-Vento Title X Homeless Education Program serves students with housing instability in the rural and urban landscapes. Through the Consolidated Federal Grants Application, we administer the following grants for 11 school districts: Title I Part A, Title II Part A, Title II Part D, Title III ELL, and Title III SAI. We always welcome ideas and comments on ways to improve services for school districts, students, families, and the communities we serve.
Our staff includes multi-talented individuals whose main focus is to meet the needs of school districts. With significant community support, we organize a number of exciting activities throughout the year such as Migrant Christmas Fiestas, Health Fairs, Vision Screenings, the Outstanding Migrant Students and High School Graduation Celebration, and Homeless Education trainings. Believing in the potential of all students, much of our work centers on supporting the academic success of students who are migrant, English Language Learners, experiencing homelessness, and who are under-served.
