Receiving and Processing Information Directly (RAPID) is a directory designed to facilitate the identification of interstate migrant families. The directory contains instructions for using the RAPID notification form, a means of rapidly communicating intended destinations of migrant families. Use of the form is designed to help identify interstate children as they move between states and to avoid missing enrollments. The form is to be attached to the family's certificate of eligibility, if available. The remainder of the directory lists the names, addresses, phone and fax numbers of the appropriate state contact assigned to accept the forms. Information from Georgia includes a town and county map and index to aid in determining the appropriate migrant education agency to contact. Louisiana provides an additional form to be completed. Michigan furnishes listings for their summer 1992 and fall 1991-92 migrant education programs. Oregon includes a chart of migrant education program coordinators for 1992-93. Likewise, Pennsylvania and Washington provide contacts for the various regions by the counties or towns they serve. Iowa was unable to participate in the directory due to fiscal constraints. (KS)
