Minnesota Department of Education Student Access and Opportunity Calendar: Utilize this calendar to find the next Migrant Student Information Form (MSIF) Workshop or Making Connections Workshop: CALENDAR
Migrant Student Information Form Workshop: The Minnesota Department of Education contracts the Migrant Education Services team at TVOC to collect minimum data elements of every migratory student throughout the state, which is federally required.
We collect this data in the Migrant Student Information Form (MSIF) Excel Workbook. Once we collect the required minimum data elements, the Tri-Valley Opportunity Council Data team enters them into our state’s database (MIS2000).
We want to try something new this coming school year to support all our districts with migratory students in collecting the required data. We will hold monthly workshops open to the districts that will focus on the MSIFs. No need to register for the workshop. Just click on the link to attend. See you there!
Making Connections Workshop: This workshop will give you a brief overview of the Migrant Education Program. During this interactive workshop, participants will have the opportunity to meet members of the Minnesota Migrant Education Program team and discuss collaboration efforts and ways to help remove barriers for highly mobile families. Participants will learn about the expectations of the migrant liaison, tools, and resources available for school districts, reporting requirements, and learn how to advocate for migratory students.
Training Request – The Minnesota Department of Education is partnering with Tri-Valley Opportunity Council to provide professional development opportunities to school staff and other organizations regarding migrant education. Please indicate which trainings you would like more information about. Trainings can be done by Teams or in person (we can come to you).
