Comprehensive Needs Assessment

The district’s MEP Comprehensive Needs Assessment (CNA) is used as the foundation for all service delivery plans.

Coordination of mep services
“Coordination” of MEP Services

The term "coordination" refers to different yet related aspects of the MEP. These aspects include:

  • Planning and carrying out programs and projects in coordination with other local, State, and Federal programs;

  • Interstate and intrastate coordination between States and local operating agencies to ensure the continuity of services for children who migrate from one State or school district to another, including but not limited to, the transfer of student records; and

Coordination of mep services1
“Coordination” of MEP Services

By coordinating with other programs, the MEP ensures that the needs of migrant children are met through a variety of sources in a way that leverages other program funds and optimizes the use of MEP funds for the unique needs of migrant children.

Service delivery plans
Service Delivery Plans Programs

  • Select children with the greatest need for MEP services according to the priority for services criteria in section 1304(d) of the statute.

    • (1) who are failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet the State’s challenging State academic content standards and challenging State student academic achievement standards, and

    • (2) whose education has been interrupted during the regular school year.

  • Identify the other eligible migrant children with special educational needs who are expected to reside in the area;

  • Determine the educational and educationally related needs of the children to be served; and

  • Determine the focus of the program (i.e., instructional areas and/or grade levels) based on a needs assessment.

Summer term
Summer Term Programs

How does a local operating agency design a summer project if it

does not have information on the needs of the children it will

serve before they arrive?

  • Local MEP conducts a needs assessment based on the characteristics of the children expected to reside in the area that the project will serve.

  • Local MEP may rely on past experience with similar children who have moved to the area or other information to determine the characteristics of the children they expect to serve.
