The manual also contains a section of sample forms and instructions on completing the forms used by the migrant recruiter. Appended are: a list of crops and agricultural activities in Colorado; answers to eligibility exercises; and guidelines for the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) Inquiry Process Information Center.
