Secondary Credit Accrual

As secondary education students move from school to school, documentation of courses taken and recommended becomes significant in their educational development. Districts are also responsible for partial and complete credits awarded by schools. Migrant students must be awarded partial credit for work completed without regard to state attendance/credit guidelines if the days missed form school relate to migrant activity.

Migrant students have alternatives available to them to earn high school credits. For example, the University of Texas at Austin's Distance Learning Program provides scholarships to migrant high school students for correspondence courses through credit by exam, on-site graded work, online classes, etc. Through the Texas Migrant Interstate Program, out of Region 1 in Edinburgh, Texas, migrant students can be administered the STAAR test out of state. Also migrant students may earn credit throughout the school year using the PASS  portion of the Project SMART migrant summer school curriculum if the district ran a migrant summer school.
