Sistema de Transferencia de Archivos para Estudiantes Migrantes: Un Mejor Entendimiento para Padres. (Migrant Student Record Transfer System: A Better Understanding for Parents).
Jaramillo, Senaida I.
When migrant children are enrolled in the Migrant Education Program, they are also enrolled in the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS), a national system which accumulates educational and health information for each child on a computer located in Little Rock, Arkansas. The system affords teachers the opportunity to review the records, determine the student's needs, and plan activities accordingly. Medical records are examined for any problem which may require immediate attention. If a family moves, the school updates all pertinent information on the child's record. When the child enrolls in another school, the new school receives the updated academic and health records. Intended to give parents a better understanding of the school records provided through the MSRTS, this booklet, written in Spanish and English, provides a brief overview of the MSRTS and each section of the educational and medical records. Recommendations on what parents can do are provided for each of the sections: educational records--student data, educational skills data, secondary credit data, and supportive data; and medical records--student data, recent health providers, problem list, patient and family history, screening data and labs, and immunization data. The booklet concludes with general information on accident insurance and parents' rights to review student records. (NQA)
