As secondary education students move from school to school, documentation of courses taken and recommended becomes significant in their educational development. Districts are responsible for partial and complete credits awarded all schools. Migrant students must be awarded partial credit for work completed without regard to state attendance/credit guidelines if the days missed from 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 Center offers scholarships to migrant high school students through credit by exam, online course, and print-based courses. Through the Texas Migrant Interstate Program, out of Region 1 in Pharr, Texas, migrant students can be administered the STAAR test out of state. Also,migrant students may earn credit throughout the school year using the Portable Assisted Study Sequence (PASS) program by completing self-contained, semi-independent-study courses.
