The Texas State Manual for Identification and Recruitment of the Migrant Students. A Manual for Practitioners in the Migrant Education Program.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Migrant Education.
This manual provides training for Migrant Education Program personnel in the areas of program purpose and history, identification and recruitment of eligible students, program services, and the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) and other interstate linkages. The identification and recruitment process consists of three interrelated elements: (1) definitions governing migrant program eligibility; (2) the process recruiters use to translate those definitions into accurate and well recorded eligibility determinations; and (3) procedures to oversee the quality of recruiters' decisions. The manual's eligibility section contains definitions, instructions for completing the certificate of eligibility, illustrative case studies, indicators of possible nonqualifying conditions, assistance with difficult decisions, and lists of qualifying seasonal and temporary work in livestock, poultry, and dairy farming. The identification and recruitment section outlines the Texas statewide effort, strategies for effective recruitment, personal characteristics of the effective recruiter, recruiter duties and responsibilities, details of the recruitment interview, characteristics of a good supervisor, and identification and recruitment competencies. The quality control section discusses required components of the personnel training program; MSRTS interagency relationships; quality control in project districts, cooperatives, and service centers; district and state monitoring of school districts' compliance with state and federal regulations; and auditable files. Appendices contain federal regulations and nonregulatory guidance, questionnaires and forms, charts of eligibility conditions and qualifying activities, alternate spellings of Hispanic names, and a glossary.
