The 18-state iSOSY MEP Consortium Incentive Grant (CIG) develops resources and materials to address the needs of migratory youth. Our products help students identify and achieve their academic and career goals with support from innovative technology. Through collaboration among member states, we expand capacity at the state and local levels to support the success of out-of-school youth (OSY) and secondary students who are at risk of dropping out of high school.
LEARN-2-Succeed is a Migrant Education Program Consortium Incentive Grant with funding from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Migrant Education. Sixteen states participate in the LEARN Consortium including Arkansas, Colorado, Hawaii, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah (Lead State), Vermont, and Virginia. The focus of the consortium is to provide teachers with tools for quickly assessing and providing supplemental research-based literacy lessons to students in grades K-12 to improve their foundational literacy skills. Lessons address reading, writing, and study skills and are designed specifically for highly mobile students who are often English language learners.

The TMIP facilitates intra- and interstate coordination of information, resources and services for migrant students, with an emphasis on serving students identified by the Texas MEP as “Priority for Services” (PFS).
