Late Entry/Early Withdrawal Policy Handbook.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Special Programs.; Texas Migrant Interstate Program, Pharr.
This booklet outlines policy options that Texas school districts can use to develop consistent credit-granting policies for migrant students who arrive late or withdraw early during the school year. In addition to advocating grading of migrant students consistently and fairly, the goal of the policies is to enhance the graduation rate of migrant and other transitory students by providing options for completing courses and graduation requirements. The booklet describes specific procedures for: (1) transferring students' grades from one school to another; (2) enabling students to complete course work missed due to late entry (tutoring, credit by examination, advanced placement examinations, auditing courses, and summer school programs); and (3) enabling students to complete work missed due to early withdrawal (giving credit when the student enrolls in another school, completing course work early, and receiving an incomplete grade). Appendices include samples of existing credit-granting policies in Texas, including a delayed completion plan, evening and summer completion plans, tutorial programs, auditing courses, and early completion plans; early withdrawal forms; and verification of migration forms.
