Children of the Four Winds: The Migrant Student Record Transfer System.
A discussion of the computerized Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) is presented. The author first describes it as a functional automated system, headquartered in the Arkansas Department of Education, which serves the record transferral needs of seasonal farm migrant children as they move throughout the contiguous 48 states. Eligibility for MSRTS services is defined, classifications of migrants are outlined, and salient characteristics of farm migratory children are mentioned. The final section of the paper reviews the funding which supports MSRTS, lists the major services of and benefits derived from the system, and discusses the measures built into the system to safeguard the privacy of sensitive information.
