Written for Migrant Student Records Transfer System (MSRTS) specialists, this manual provides information to help them generate, translate, interpret, use, and update a migrant child's educational record. The manual serves as a reference to be used in conjunction with the National MSRTS User's Manual and as initial orientation and subsequent guide for new MSRTS specialists. Introductory information includes an overview of the system with subsequent chapters giving concise and specific instructions for recordkeeping with examples provided for handling typical cases. Individual chapters cover the authorization form, parental concurrence form, management information system form, enrollment form, non-migrant moves, school enrollment and withdrawal, change in migrant status, recertification, and termination of migrant status. A 13-page section covers the Migrant Student Educational Record with steps for completing each of 24 information areas on the form. Additional chapters cover summer school programs, the specialist's role in annual migrant program evaluations, and procedures to follow when keeping records for more than one parish. The references and resources section includes names, mailing addresses, and phone numbers for MSRTS staff at state, regional, and parish offices. Also included are abbreviations and codes needed for recordkeeping and a copy of the annual evaluation questionnaire for Louisiana's Migrant Education Programs. (JHZ)
