    In Texas, migrant children and youth are identified and recruited for the Migrant Education Program (MEP) through an interview process conducted by a local school district recruiter. Because of the highly mobile nature of migratory work in agriculture, it is required that identification and recruitment be conducted beyond the campus and throughout the school district community.

    The Texas Manual for the Identification and Recruitment of Migrant Children provides basic information regarding the responsibilities that local recruiters have in the identification and recruitment of migrant children in Texas. This manual is a reference guide designed to help recruiters:

    • make proper eligibility decisions;
    • complete necessary documentation; and
    • support Educational Service Center (ESC) and Local Education Agency (LEA) quality control measures.
