US Department of Education: "MSIX - A Resource for Supporting Migratory Students' Academic Success"
MSIX is a national records transfer system used by state educational agencies (SEAs) and local educational agencies (LEAs) to share information on children eligible for the Title I, Part C - Migrant Education Program. It contains critical data related to enrollment, placement and credit accrual. This presentation will highlight SEA efforts to use MSIX to make effective and timely placement decisions for migratory children when they enroll in new school districts across the nation. We welcome the participation of SEA and LEA staff interested in learning more about this important resource for migratory children.
