Supplement Not Supplant What does "supplement, not supplant" mean? "Supplement, not supplant" is the phrase used to describe the requirement that MEP funds may be used only to supplement the level of funds that would, in the absence of MEP funds, be made available from non-Federal sources for the education of children participating in MEP projects. SEAs and local operating agencies may not use MEP funds to supplant (i.e., replace) non-Federal funds. [Also known as “in addition to.”] Office of Migrant Education, Non-regulatory Guidance, 2010

Remember when…. A skater could pretty much be guaranteed an Olympic medal if they successfully executed a “double sow cow” followed by a “triple axel”?

Referred Services Cannot be MEP-funded Cannot be school or district based services that the child is already entitled to receive (e.g., Title I Part A services, Title III services). Are educational or educationally-related (supportive) services that migrant children would not have received without the efforts of MEP-funded personnel. The child must actually receive the service in order for it to be counted as a referral. An eligible migrant child must be the direct recipient of the referred service. Examples of referred services that a child might receive as a result of MEP efforts include: GED or pre-GED classes, Adult basic education classes, parenting classes (for eligible youth), computer literacy classes, job training programs, early childhood classes, nutrition and health education workshops, health and dental screenings, and food and clothing assistance.
