Texas Migrant Education Program: New Generation System (NGS)

The New Generation System (NGS) is a web-based interstate information network that communicates demographic, educational and health data on migrant children 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 federal performance reports.

The Texas MEP has developed policies, procedures and guidelines to assist Local Education Agency (LEA) and/or Education Service Center (ESC) staff in implementing NGS activities. For more information, please click on the link below.
