Computer Link Offering Variable Educational Records (Project CLOVER). A National Diffusion Network Developer/Demonstrator Project.
Arkansas State Dept. of Education, Little Rock.
Project CLOVER (Computerized Link Offering Variable Educational Records) is a demonstration project designed to increase use of the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS). Project CLOVER (1) helps to ensure that schools attended by migrant students have the capability to receive and transmit academic and medical information on students; (2) informs schools and other educational and health organizations serving migrant students about the benefits of the MSRTS computer system; (3) trains appropriate school/agency personnel; (4) provides follow-up assistance and monitoring of areas utilizing the system; (5) conducts evaluations of system use and training; and (6) provides computer services, as negotiated. The booklet outlines responsibilities of MSRTS/CLOVER and explains eligibility for the project and responsibilities of project users. It discusses the four elements of the MSRTS process--enrollment, withdrawal, updating, and inquiry; issues of personnel selection; and training procedures. The booklet explains content and use of Migrant Student Health Records and the Migrant Student Education Records contained on MSRTS/CLOVER and presents samples from the MSRTS Academic Skills Booklets used to code student skills. The use of codes for the medical and educational records is explained. Samples of the Migrant Student Educational Record, Migrant Student Health Record, and Health Data Entry Form are included. (LFL)
