How can the TX-NGS/MSIX
Data Specialist support
these efforts?

TX-NGS/MSIX Data specialists can provide support to other MEP staff responsible for serving the migratory students and families in many ways. Some suggestions include:

  • Ensure the following activities are addressed accurately as per the timelines
  • Encode most recent transcripts and course grades into TX-NGS.
  • Encode all state assessment data into TX-NGS.
  • Request, receive, and encode any missing records, as needed.
  • Encode enrollment and withdrawal data for all migratory students enrolled in the A Bright Beginning (ABB) Program and Project SMART Summer Programs, including pre- and post-assessment data.
  • Generate and print a Two-Year-Old Turning Three Report and provide it to the appropriate ABB educator for residency verification and enrollment into the ABB home-based or center-based program.
  • Monitor students’ grades and coursework as they are encoded into TX-NGS and notify the migrant counselor, director, or appropriate MEP staff member if any discrepancies are noted (e.g., repeated coursework, failing grades, missing data).
  • Print a Comprehensive Secondary Credit Report and provide a printed copy to the student, parent, counselor, MEP coordinator, etc.
  • Generate and print a Migrant Student Information Exchange (MSIX) Consolidated Student Record for MEP staff, as appropriate.
  • Generate and print reports needed to support the graduation of migratory students, including:

Priority for Service

This report displays a list of students who are either failing or at risk of failing to meet the State’s academic standards and whose education has been interrupted during the regular school year.

At-Risk of Non-Promotion

This report lists students who have the At Risk of Non-Promotion checkbox checked on an enrollment in the selected school year and locale.

Partial Credit

This report displays information for students who have earned credits for a particular course, but who have not completed the course. The report shows how many course hours have been completed for each course, as well as, any partial grade and credits granted. This report helps users identify which students, if any, require consolidation of partial credits.

Comprehensive Secondary Credit

This report provides a detailed listing of courses taken by a student for grade levels 9-12. This information is used to monitor a student's progress towards graduation.

Formal/Informal Assessments

This report displays a detailed listing of any assessments assigned to a student.

Transfer Document

The student transfer document is designed to provide all of the pertinent data on a student to facilitate correct grade placement. Data includes demographic, education (including enrollments, supplemental programs, and special needs), health, immunization history, course history, and medical alerts. The transfer documents can be created for students in Pre-K thru 12 grade levels.

Grade/Age Distribution Summary

This report allows users to check students for incorrect grade level and/or incorrect age entries for a particular facility.

Participants by Grade and Term

This report shows an unduplicated count of participating students by grade level within a term. The definition of a “participant” is a student who receives migrant funded supplemental services. This report shows the count of students by regular and summer/intersession terms. If a student participates in both a regular and summer enrollment, TX-NGS/MSIX counts the student once for each term.

CAMP Recruitment

This report shows a list of students who are potential candidates to participate in the College Assistance Migrant Program. CAMP provides funds to students and assists migratory and seasonal farm worker students during their first year at an institution of higher learning.

  • Distribute all reports to the designated MEP staff, district, or campus staff member as per guidance from the MEP coordinator and/or director. Refer to the Responsibilities of Project Districts for more information.
