Migrant Education Tutorial and Support Services Program

The Migrant Education Tutorial and Support Services Program (METS) is a part of the New York State Migrant Education Program (MEP).  The MEP is funded under Title I, Part C (Education of Migratory Children) of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, and offers instruction and advocacy services to MEP-eligible students and families pursuant to the legislative mandates delineated in ESSA § 1301 et seq.

The Cortland METS assists school districts in their efforts to meet the special needs of migrant students and works to bridge educational and social service equity, access, and opportunity gaps.  The Cortland METS  supports high-quality, comprehensive educational programs designed to improve migrant students’ academic and life outcomes and eradicate barriers to academic persistence and achievement, with the goal of ensuring that every migrant student reaches challenging academic standards and graduates with a high school diploma or its equivalent. 

Additionally, the Cortland METS provides cross-sectoral advocacy services to MEP-eligible students and families, including facilitating access to educational, healthcare, employment, nutritional, legal, and other government- and community-based services for which they may be entitled or eligible.  

The Cortland METS is tasked with providing the aforementioned services to MEP-eligible students and families across a 12-county region of Central New York and the Southern Tier (counties in RED below):

Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Onondaga, Otsego, Schoharie, Schuyler, Tioga, Tompkins

El Programa de Educación para Migrantes de Cortland

El programa empezó en el 1979 para asistir a los distritos escolares a satisfacer las necesidades insatisfechas, exclusivas de los niños migrantes. La oficina del M.E.O.P. está localizada en el recinto de SUNY Cortland y es administrada fiscalmente por el colegio.

El programa provee a cada niño y familia un programa individualizado para satisfacer sus necesidades. Como uno de 9 Programas de Educación para Migrantes en el  estado de Nueva York, el mismo sirve a más de 450 niños migrantes en 120 distritos escolares.

Como semillas, ellos han sido sembrados en su escuela.
¡Es nuestro deseo que ellos florezcan en cosechas de esperanza!"
