BERNE, Ind. (NBC33) - On Thursday, the Indiana Department of Education unveiled an expanded Migrant Education Program for Indiana students.

The program helps migrant students coming in and out of the state continue to learn basic lessons using state-of-the-art technology. MEP uses classrooms based in trailers in an attempt to bring the classroom to the student.

There are seven regional centers around the state geared towards identifying and improving problem areas for the targeted migrant students. Berne is host to one of the locations offering classes for migrant families from April to October.
