Identification & Recruitment
The Oregon Migrant Education Service Center (OMESC) provides statewide training and technical assistance to Migrant Education Program (MEP) recruiters in Oregon. Recruiters are hired by their MEP region in which they serve. Newly hired recruiters must be trained and certified by the OMESC before they can recruit and complete a Certificate of Eligibility (COE). The recruiter's training plan includes a full day training on Child Eligibility, MEP Non-Regulatory Guidance (NRG), completion of the Certificate of Eligibility (COE), interviewing techniques, pre-post assessments, and field experience with a mentor.
Title I-C Migrant Education Program requires states to comply with implementing an Identification & Recruitment quality control process to enforce Federal Regulation CFR 200.81. The Oregon Department of Education has contracted with the OMESC to carry out these requirements.
Some of the quality control processes include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Reviewing and examining all COEs in the state for accuracy and eligibility
- Conducting re-interview to validate eligibility determination
- Providing continuous training/education to MEP staff on the latest rulings
- Providing interviewing techniques
- Planning ID&R and outreach strategies
