MEP Definition: Identification Determining the location and presence of migrant children
MEP Definition: Recruitment • Making contact with migrant families • Explaining the MEP • Securing the necessary information to make an eligibility determination • Recording the basis of the child’s eligibility on a COE Upon successful eligibility determination of a migrant family, children may be enrolled in the MEP.
Certificate of Eligibility (COE) The recruiter has deemed the student(s) eligible for MEP services upon completion and upload of the COE into the OMEC server. A temporary COE is forwarded to the MEP for their records. Data from a finalized COE is uploaded into MSIX database after the COE has successfully completed a 3 tier quality control process at the OMEC office. Disqualified COEs will be communicated to the MEP*and filed at the OMEC office. E.O.E No Signature means Temporary COE *MEP must have a valid COE on file in order to continue to serve student(s).
