The Migrant Education Program celebrated the grand opening of its newly-remodeled space at the Lane Educational Service District main campus in Eugene this month.
Families, community partners, staff, and directors gathered March 7 for the celebration, which included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tours of the new space.
Ribbon-cutting participants included School Board Chair Linda Hamilton, Superintendent Tony Scurto, MEP Administrator Ana Quintero-Arias, and Facility Manager Brad Johnston.
MEP provides supplemental educational services to migrant students to support their academic success throughout the year from preschool through grade 12.
The new design creates an accessible and welcoming space with endless possibilities for supporting collaborative work. Conference hosting is available for both smaller and larger groups, with space carved out for business functions with connectivity for video conferencing.
Through their advocacy work and collaboration with local school districts and community partners, MEP can help inform families about their rights and highlight services available to them in the community, with helps to strengthen families with tools to navigate the educational system effectively and proactively.
