The Nottoway County Regional Migrant Education Program:
The Nottoway County Regional Migrant Education Program (NCRMEP) provides quality academic support services and advocacy to migrant students and out of school migrant youth in the counties of Amelia, Cumberland, Lunenburg, and Nottoway. Students come from Mexico and other U.S States. The primary goal of the NCRMEP is to ensure that all migrant students reach challenging academic standards and graduate with a high school diploma or complete a GED that prepares them for further learning, productive employment, and to be responsible community members.
Who We Serve:
To qualify for migrant services, a family or independent youth must have moved from one school district to another within the past three years for the purpose of finding agricultural work. The most common types of seasonal or temporary employment in this area include dairy, poultry, fruit/vegetable farms, and harvesting timber.
The NCRMEP’s migrant liaison assists with recruitment and enrollment of students into school and provides other educational services to migrant families as needed. The migrant liaison also provides interpretation services for school mailings and student meetings, including child study and Individual Education Plan (IEP) meetings. Once enrolled in school, tutoring, computer assistance, and English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction are offered as needed. The NCRMEP works with local service providers to refer migrant students and their families for needed health, medical and dental assistance.

The Nottoway County English as a Second Language Program:
The English as a Second Language (ESL) Program provide English language services to Limited English Proficiency (LEP) students in grades K-12. LEP students are identified by the Home Language Registration Form and screened to determine their English proficiency level (Virginia WIDA State Levels 1-5) and academic needs. Those identified as eligible are provided instructional support by an ESL teacher. Services may include flexible grouping, inclusion, and pull-out instruction. The instructional resource support is provided until a student can meet passing requirements independently in general education classes.
