Success Stories of Students in the Migrant Education Program

The following student stories celebrate the success of migrant participants with the support of the Georgia Migrant Education Program. Each story speaks to the contributions of educators, migrant staff, school administrators, local districts, community partners and migrant parents in helping migrant participants reach their highest potential.

It is our hope that the success stories presented in this publication serve as a source of inspiration to other migrant students and parents, and that it becomes a valuable resource for engaging in dialogue with interested agencies and community leaders working together to not only enhance the services provided to migrant students and families but also to provide them with a better quality of life in their communities.

​Georgia MEP's Consortium Incentive Grants ​

The U.S. Department of Education awarded four continuation Consortium Incentive Grants (CIGs) to 33 participating States. The CIG program provides financial incentives to SEAs to improve the interstate or intrastate coordination of migrant education programs by addressing key acade​mic needs of migratory children who have their education interrupted.  The Georgia Migrant Education Program (GaMEP​) has participated in three of the four funded CIG programs since 2015. 

  • Inspire and Innovate: The Migratory Parent Action Coalition (I2MPACT) is a Consortium Incentive Grant (CIG) designed to support state migrant education programs (MEPs) to increase migratory parent engagement and empowerment. ​For more information visit: https://www.i2mpact.org/
