LONG ISLAND METRO MIGRANT EDUCATION & TUTORIAL SERVICES PROGRAM (METS)

 
General Information
Description of ServiceOffers a program that is funded through a state grant and authorizes supplementary Title I educational services and advocacy for all Agricultural Migrant Eligible students, families and Out-of-School Youth. Migrant eligibility is determined through a certification process by the New York State Office of Identification and Recruitment (ID&R). Families who have moved into a school district within the past three years and whose primary wage earner works in agriculture or fisheries may be referred to determine their eligibility. Once eligibility is confirmed, the Migrant Education Tutorial Service Program addresses the special needs of migrant children ages 3 – 22 as outlined in the NYSED – MEP Service Delivery Plan. Parents, students, and staff work in partnership with local schools, community service agencies and agricultural businesses to help migrant children and youth meet New York State’s challenging educational standards. Assuming an advocacy role, staff members assess the educational, health, and social needs of each family member and outlines an appropriate service provision model. All services are supplemental to the local school district’s efforts. These services are available to migrant eligible farm workers under age 22 and to children of agricultural workers, fishers and food packers in school districts in Suffolk, Nassau and the five boroughs at no cost to districts.
