The Lowndes County Schools Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federally funded program designed to support comprehensive educational programs for migrant children.  These programs help reduce the educational disruption and other problems that result from repeated moves connected to agricultural-related jobs.  Lowndes County provides two Student Support Providers to work with these students and their families in order to minimize disruption in the educational process.
