Migrant Education School Readiness Program (MESRP)
The Migrant Education School Readiness Program is a statewide, school site and home-based family literacy educational model authorized under No Child Left Behind, Title 1, Part C. The Program assists migratory parents to increase literacy skills so that they can prepare their children, birth to seven years of age, to become successful learners. The program is designed to help break the cycle of poverty and improve the literacy of participating migrant families by integrating early childhood education, adult literacy, and parenting education into a unified family literacy program.
Migrant parents receive academic support in order to enhance their literacy levels, expand their parenting skills, and learn English-as-a-Second Language. Parent and Child Time (P.A.C.T.) is a an integral part of the Migrant Education School Readiness Program, during which migrant parents learn how to hone their skills and abilities as their child’s first teachers.
