Qualified Region 13 staff has responsibility to provide training and technical assistance to district personnel on operation and implementation of the NGS Implementation Guidelines for School Districts and Education Service Centers; maintain data integrity and ensure that migrant student data are consistent in both New Generation System (NGS) and Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS).
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.
