The manual assists both experienced and inexperienced personnel in defining and completing the entire range of tasks associated with the position of Pennsylvania Migrant Education Recruiter. The recruiter's primary responsibilities are to identify migrant children in the area and enroll those children eligible under Title I ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) into the program and the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS). These duties are important because migrant children are often 2 to 3 years behind their peers and because state funding levels are in part determined by enrollment figures. In addition to identification and enrollment, the recruiter must complete yearly re-enrollment forms for provisional students, attend training sessions, serve as home-school liaison when requested, make monthly written and personal reports to the site director, and complete other assigned duties. The manual gives guidelines and examples to aid in determining program eligibility, completing all enrollment forms, conducting and reporting home visits, and working in the schools; a map of program sites in Pennsylvania; organizational charts for recruiters; a roster of Pennsylvania recruiters; and information regarding two reports from the MSRTS center in Little Rock, Arkansas.
