State Univ. of New York, Oneonta. Coll. at Oneonta.
Published in English and Spanish versions and written for migrant high school students, this brochure outlines practical steps to follow to insure high school graduation and encourages migrant students to assume responsibility for meeting graduation requirements. A checklist of 15 items encourages students to ask teachers and counselors questions about course credits, requirements, competency exams, and post-secondary education opportunities. A worksheet is provided for the student's own record of acquired credits. The brochure presents eight steps to follow when changing schools which includes requesting transcripts and withdrawal grades and asking about migrant education programs at the new school. The brochure lists 19 educational services and alternative programs that may be helpful to migrant students, e.g., summer school, evening classes, and credit make-up programs. Space is provided for recording phone numbers and addresses, and the Interstate Migrant Secondary Services Program's phone, address, and contact person are included for students who need help locating migrant programs in western states.
