The Texas Migrant Interstate Program (TMIP) 30th Interstate Secondary Credit Accrual Workshop was held on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 at McAllen Embassy Suites and Mission High School migrant students were in attendance to facilitate the break-out sessions. MCISD also hosted out of state and regional representatives at Mission Collegiate High School with a question and answer session with migrant students on Wednesday, February 28, 2018.
TMIP is a special project of the Texas Education Agency, Division of Curriculum. TMIP facilitates intra- and interstate coordination of information, resources and services for migrant students, with an emphasis on serving students identified by the Texas MEP as "Priority for Services" (PFS). The purpose of the Texas Migrant Interstate Program (TMIP) is to facilitate intra- and interstate coordination in order to help meet the educational needs of migrant children from Texas who migrate out of state.
The following states had representation at the workshop: Ohio, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Florida, Nebraska, South Carolina, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana as well as each of the twenty Regional Educational Service Centers from Texas.
One of the highlights of the event was that one of our migrant students was able to visit with his administrator and teacher from Iowa. Juan Briseño, a Mission Collegiate HS senior, had the opportunity to take his photo with these two individuals that have provided educational guidance for him when he is in Iowa.
