MSRTS -- A Handbook to the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (State of Washington).
Washington Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia. Migrant Education Program.
The Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) was designed to permit schools to share the accumulated understanding of many prior schools about the migrant child and his needs. This shared migrant student information frees a school to focus its energy on serving a child's needs instead of using it to identify those needs. If the MSRTS is to be of maximum benefit to migrant students and educators alike, the student data it gathers and disseminates must be current, accurate, complete, and promptly transmitted. Thus, the system's success depends on the effectiveness of each link in the data chain--the school, the terminal, and the data bank. This handbook is a guide for MSRTS personnel. It is intended to increase awareness of the migrant student and his need for a transfer record, and to outline the responsibility of each person employed in the system toward fulfilling that need. School districts served by the Sunnyside and Othello terminals in Washington are listed. (Author/NQ)
