Eligibility Information

  • Thank you for your interest in the Migrant Education Program. We need to ask a few more questions to help determine eligibility.
  • If you answer "Yes" to the following all three questions, please contact Loretta Kittrell at (907)442-1817 or click on this link. MEP Eligibility

  • 1. Within the past three years has anyone in your family engaged in any of the following activities:
    • Commercial fishing or other fishing activities (including shrimping, crabbing, or clamming) for the purpose of producing food for your family's use and needs or
    • Agriculture (may include berry picking) or
    • Logging (with a logging company) Fish processing (cannery work)

    2. Did the activity require staying overnight 20 miles away from your residence for at least 7 nights/8 days over the course of a year?

    3. Is the activity an economic necessity for your family, meaning you need the income, harvest, or catch to meet your household's basic needs?

  • Once you have completed the questionnaire a member of the Migrant Education staff will contact you soon. Because eligibility is determined by seasonal moves and the economic need for those moves in and out of Anchorage School District boundaries, our recruiters will be asking for calendar dates as part of the interview.
