In Wisconsin, the Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a summer-only regional program. Regional Coordinators develop programs unique to each region to serve migratory students with math and reading instruction, social-emotional programming, connections to community supports, college and career readiness, and family engagement. Some programs include multiple program sites in order to reach all students in the region.

The MEP provides supplemental services to migratory students that are designed to:
- help migratory children overcome educational disruption and other factors inhibiting migratory children from doing well in school;
- focus on school readiness for preschool children, literacy and mathematics for K-8 students, and credit accrual and transition to postsecondary education or employment for high school students and out-of-school youth;
- ensure easy exchange of student records and information transfer via the Migrant Student Information Exchange (MSIX) multi-state database; and
- support non-academic needs of migratory families and children such as medical, dental, and nutritional services through community partnerships.
