Task 2: High-School Equivalency Program
Guideline: As noted by the Office of Migrant Education, "The High School Equivalency Program (HEP) helps migratory and seasonal farmworkers (or children of such workers), who are 16 years of age or older and not currently enrolled in school, to obtain the equivalent of a high school diploma and, subsequently, to gain employment or begin post secondary education or training." Educators working with high school age migrant students should be aware of how their students can benefit from this program.
