Migrant Education Forms
The Migrant Education Advisor Program (MEAP) is an educational collaborative comprised of the Migrant Education Program, Region 2, the Masters in School Counseling Programs at California State University Sacramento and Sonoma State University (http://www.sonoma.edu/counseling/MEAP), and school districts served by the Migrant Education Program in Region 2.
The Migrant Education Advisor Program represents Region 2's philosophy, which is to provide quality supplementary services, and to work together with school districts and the community to maximize the potential of migrant students. The purpose of MEAP is to meet two critical gaps that exist in education. First, the disproportionately low numbers of migrant students that graduate from high school and continue on to a post-secondary educational institution. Second, to assist California State Universities to increase the graduation rates of bilingual school counselors and thus ameliorate the limited number of bilingual/bicultural school counselors available in our state’s K-12 schools.
MEAP is modeled after the California Mini-Corps Program, a highly successful program that has addressed a similar need in the teaching profession. MEAP provides school counselor trainees and interns to local school districts where migrant students attend school(s). MEAP Advisor Trainees/Mentors work under the supervision of the on-site credentialed school counselor, or an administrator, in the process of ensuring that migrant students are provided with school advisement services. MEAP Advisor Trainees/Mentors are bilingual and knowledgeable relative to the academic requirements for both high school graduation and admission to post-secondary institutions of higher learning.
