Abstract: Education of Migrant Students has been an on-going challenge. Congress tried to meet the challenge with Migrant Education Program (MEP), an amendment to the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Times have changed. As of April, 2008, all States have been charged with a mandate: Use the Migrant Student Record Exchange (MSIX) (an online database) to ensure seamless integration of their academic records as well as demographic and health information into the latest school each student attends. This is a technology-driven method to help at-risk students. This study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of the mandate. It revealed a less than successful implementation; as of July 2010 only seven states had fully implemented MSIX. Although implementation of the MSIX was, it has received little public attention or support. The lack of full implementation by many states suggests a lack of enthusiasm. America has the means to help its migrant students secure an education. Two years after mandated implementation, it is time to ‘get with the e-program”!
