New Generation System (NGS)

New Generation System (NGS) is a web-based interstate information network that communicates demographic, educational and health data on migrant students to educators throughout the nation. The system allows educators to record the movement of migrant students through the educational process by producing on-line records of a student’s educational progress and health profile. Educators can generate a student transfer document to facilitate academic placement as the student transfers schools. NGS also allows educators to generate various student-level, management and Office of Migrant Education performance reports.

Migrant Student Information Exchange (MSIX)

The Migrant Student Information Exchange (MSIX) is a national web-based portal that links states' migrant student record databases. It facilitates the national exchange of migrant students' educational and health records among the states. MSIX produces a single "consolidated record" from each state in which a migrant child was ever enrolled. MSIX provides information on a student's previous moves, enrollments, grade or course placement, and accrual of credits.
