NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION REQUESTS WAIVER TO TITLE I, PART C: MIGRANT EDUCATION PROGRAM, MSIX DATA QUALITY GRANT
Notice is hereby given that the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction will submit a request for an applicable waiver to requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as it relates to the North Carolina Migrant Education Program. The waiver would allow the North Carolina Migrant Education Program to continue to expend funds from the Migrant Student Information Exchange (MSIX) Data Quality Grant to meet the following goals:
- Enhancements to the state's migrant or state student database to ensure the inclusion of the Minimum Data Elements in accordance with MSIX data specifications;
- Development of manuals, procedures, pamphlets or other materials that support the implementation of the state's records exchange program;
- Support for activities directly related to staff training on the use of MSIX, including staff attendance and travel to MSIX meetings and workshops; and
- Purchase of technologies that will streamline the transmission or improve the quality of the Minimum Data Elements.
The state believes that the requested waiver will improve the academic achievement of Migrant Education students by facilitating timely records transfer and review as students move from district to district or state to state.
The deadline to submit comments on the requested waiver is Thursday, Oct. 13. Interested persons may send their written comments to Donna Brown via email at Donna.Brown@dpi.nc.gov or by U.S. Mail to:
