MSRTS (Migrant Student Record Transfer System): A Marriage of Education and Technology for Migrant Children.
Dyer, Maxwell
The Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) is an automated telecommunication system that has associated the 48 contiguous states and Puerto Rico to provide continuity of educational and health programs for the more than one million children of seasonal migrant workers. The purposes of MSRTS are (1) to provide rapidly appropriate public school personnel with pertinent educational and health information on the children as they move from school to school, and (2) to provide management data to administrative personnel in planning academic and health programs for them. The system is funded under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and is serviced by a computer operated by the Arkansas Department of Education. MSRTS headquarters provides technical training services for personnel in all of the participating state departments of education, the terminal operators, and regional and local service personnel such as administrators, teachers, councelors, nurses, and others. Three major kinds of records are provided to schools upon request: a report of urgent health needs, the student's cumulative record, and a detailed health problem list. (TO)
