Greetings & Welcome to the redesigned Texas Migrant Interstate Program (TMIP)!
The TMIP mission and purpose, under the direction of the Texas Migrant Education Program at the Texas Education Agency, is to help reduce the effects of educational disruption that Texas mobile, migratory students often face as they migrate intra/interstate to seek qualifying temporary or seasonal employment in the agriculture or fishing industry.
The TMIP works to ensure migratory children who move among states are not penalized in any manner by disparities among the different states due to differences in curriculum, graduation requirements, and challenging state academic standards.
We invite you to explore the new TMIP website at www.txmip.net
and bookmark it for future reference. Our goal is to provide support and resources to Texas migratory students that move intra/interstate. The TMIP coordinates with receiving states of migratory students to afford the student an equal opportunity to meet the same challenging content and performance standards that the State of Texas has established for all children.
The TMIP’s staff assists migratory students, their families, school counselors, and intrastate interstate MEP staff. TMIP ensures that:
• a student’s critical information is shared securely
• students are placed in appropriate courses/grade levels
• secondary credit accrual needs are met for on-time graduation from high school
The website is progressing to ensure TMIP provides the best resources available to provide the migrant education program stakeholders resources which can be used to support:
• student academic achievement
• postsecondary planning for students
• out-of-school migratory youth
Some examples of resources available through the TMIP website include:
• State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness/End of Course (STAAR/EOC)
o Testing Calendars
o STAAR Released Test Questions
o K-12 Parent Resources
o Texas Gateway
• College-Going and Career Resources
• Student Summer Camps for STEM and STEAM
• Student Summer Camp for Leadership
If your state is interested in partnering with TMIP to be a potential testing site, please contact us at [email protected].
Finally, we encourage you to check back often to view new information added to the website, and we invite you to submit your feedback as we work together to support the success of our shared migratory children.
