Continuous Improvement Cycle

The Minnesota Migrant Education Program’s (MEP) continuous improvement cycle includes comprehensive needs assessment (CNA) was conducted using the guidance found in the Migrant Education CNA Toolkit (2012).

The CNA was designed to develop an understanding of the unique educational needs of Minnesota migrant students and their families. Not only does this analysis of needs provide a foundation to direct the Minnesota MEP through the service delivery planning (SDP) process, but it also supports the overall MEP continuous improvement and quality assurance processes and the overall state plan. This needs analysis process was adapted to the resources and structures available in Minnesota.

In response to identified needs and alignment with goals for all students, Minnesota adopted the four goal areas below and continued their use throughout the completion of the SDP.

Goal 1: Reading Achievement

Goal 2: Mathematics Achievement

Goal 3: High School Graduation and Services for out-of-school youth (OSY)

Goal 4: Support Services

The SDP will help the Minnesota MEP develop and articulate a clear vision of:

  1. The needs of Minnesota migrant children.
  2. The services the Minnesota migrant education program will provide on a statewide basis.
  3. The Minnesota migrant education program’s measurable program objectives (MPOs) and how they help achieve the state’s performance targets.
  4. How to evaluate whether and to what degree the program is effective.
