Records Exchange and MSIX


The migrant student information exchange msix parent advisory council pac meeting february 4 2013 georgia department of education

What is Records Exchange?

The Migrant Education Program (MEP) from each state in the United States collects specific education and health data from its migrant students and sends them to a national information system for students in the MEP

Records Exchange and MSIX

Records Exchange and MSIX

  • Why do we need Records Exchange?

  • Migrant students often enroll in multiple schools and districts during the year as their families move to find work in agriculture or fishing

  • Transferring their educational records from

  • school to school can be a challenge

  • Without current and accurate records,

  • students may be placed incorrectly or not

  • enrolled in school in a timely manner

Records Exchange and MSIX

What is being done to help with this challenge?

The US Department of Education:

Helps states to develop ways to electronically transfer student records of migrant kids who participate in the MEP

Works with the states so that they can

participate in this exchange

Assures that the states participate in the

exchange

The Information and Its Orgins


The migrant student information exchange msix parent advisory council pac meeting february 4 2013 georgia department of education

Information and Origin

What information does MSIX contain and where does it come from?

  • The data in MSIX comes from information already collected from the Migrant Programs in the different states

  • The data is broken down into 4 categories:

    • Demographic data

    • Enrollment data

    • Assessment data

    • Course history/class data


Information and origin

Information and Origin


Information and origin1

Information and Origin

  • All of the information sent from the different states is held in MSIX

  • If the student has participated in the MEP in different states, MSIX joins the information sent by all of the states about the student and produces a Consolidated Student Record


Information and origin2

Information and Origin

  • MSIX has a “student matching” process which takes place to determine if the student is the same as one from another state

Data security

Data Security

How is my child’s information protected?

  • MSIX is only open to approved users who have a need to view student data for decisions on enrollment, grade or course placement, and accrual of credits

  • Approved users are:

    • MEP Staff

    • School Registrars

    • Teachers / Tutors / Counselors / Nurses

    • Advocates / Family Outreach Staff

  • Parents and students cannot have an MSIX account


Data security1

Data Security

  • All potential users must complete an application that is approved by the state Migrant Program


Data security2

Data Security

  • Users are assigned a user name and password that must be changed every 60 days and cannot be “recycled”

  • Users have 3 opportunities to log in unsuccessfully before the account gets locked

  • After 90 days of inactivity, accounts are automatically disabled

    • Users have to contact the state MEP to have their account reactivated and password reset


Data security3

Data Security

MSIX contains minimal personally identifiable information (PII) such as student names and dates of birth

MSIX does not contain PII such as social security numbers, telephone numbers, addresses, place of employment, etc.

All student data is protected in MSIX by the security measures in place

Uses


The migrant student information exchange msix parent advisory council pac meeting february 4 2013 georgia department of education

Uses

It’s July. Jose just finished his Junior year in high school and moved from Texas to Iowa.

Jose’s Texas school is closed for the summer, so no one is available to respond to the Iowa school’s transcript request.

Jose successfully passes all of his classes and graduates high school on time.

The Iowa school registrar accesses MSIX, reviews Jose’s course record from Texas and places him in the appropriate grade, his Senior year.

Steve arrives at a new school. Based on his age, a new guidance counselor recommends placing Steve in Pre-Algebra.

Steve is an 8th grader who attends three different schools in a given year. He excels in math, and finished Algebra 1 in 7th grade.

Uses

Mona is 19 and is enrolling in her third school of the year. She hopes to graduate from high school in a few months.

Neither Mona nor her parents have copies of her earlier transcripts showing what high school credits she has accrued.

The guidance counselor determines that when Mona finishes the current semester with passing grades, she will have enough credits to graduate.

Mona’s guidance counselor at the new school accesses MSIX and can see all of her prior coursework and grades.
