MEP and Ogden City Schools
Ogden City Schols are accountable and empowered to meet the needs of all eligible migrant students as part of a coordinated district effort to ensure the success of all students. As of SY 2003-2004, individual schools have had direct supervisory responsibility for their MEP--both during the regular school year as well as during the summer intercession. Principal and faculties have been enabled to more closely monitor and more adequately provide services for their individual migrant stufents that ever before. Funds are directly dispersed to the schools, and programs are directly aligned at the school level in order to best ensure the academic and emotional success of eligible migrant students.
