The Migrant Education School Readiness Program Gives Emphasis to the Following
"A family who learns together, will grow together."
What is the Migrant Education School Readiness Program (MESRP)?
The Migrant Education School Readiness Program (MESRP) is a statewide home and school based family education model which assists migratory parents to increase their literacy and parenting skills, so that they in turn can prepare their children (birth to 7 years of age) to become successful learners.
What Services Does the Migrant Education School Readiness Program Provide?
The major thrust of services is that of providing literacy, parenting and English as a Second Language skills to migratory parents; early childhood development and kindergarten readiness skills to their children (birth to 7 years of age).
A major emphasis is given to providing interactive literacy activities between parents and their children. However, recognizing that migrant families have older siblings who also need services, participating regions provide tutorial and other support assistance to these students within the framework of their Migrant Education School Readiness Programs.
All services provided to migratory families in the Migrant Education School Readiness Program are coordinated with local school districts, adult education programs, community colleges and other agencies.
Furthermore, the Migrant Education School Readiness Program is committed to providing all services at times and locations selected by migratory parents, thus enabling them to actively participate in project activities.
How Do Families Qualify for the Migrant Education School Readiness Program?
Participating families must be classified as “migratory” under Migrant Education guidelines. Participating children must be between 0 and 7 years of age. Parents and children must participate together in project activities.
Where are Migrant Education School Readiness Program Services Being Provided in California?
Currently, the Migrant Education School Readiness Program provides services at 232 sites within 23 Migrant Education Regions.
