|School Year||State||File Spec||Data Group||Reporting Level||Data Note||State Note|
|2015-2016||INDIANA||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students increased by 10 percent or more between SY2014-15 and SY2015-16.||
The IDOE has placed an increased focus on regional center support of ID&R this past year, including providing training on the creation of regional ID&R plans, and requiring migrant regional centers to have sufficient supports in place for ID&R as a condition of receiving Title I, Part C funds. Having a relatively stable ID&R team for the past four years has also contributed to our increase in numbers, as recruiters are more familiar with their areas each year, and families know and trust the recruiters and the Indiana MEP overall.
|2013-2014||INDIANA||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students increased by 10 percent or more between SY2012-13 and SY2013-14.||
The IDOE placed a particular focus on recruitment efforts by having qualified recruitment field specialists that work and live in the region they serve. In addition, regional service centers and local school corporations assisted in our recruitment efforts, something that had never been done in the past. Through their expert identification skills, community relationships, and understanding of the program, we have seen an increase in the overall number of identified migrant students around the state.
|2011-2012||INDIANA||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students increased by 10 percent or more between SY2010-11 and SY2011-12.||
The Category 1 child count for 2011-2012 increased by 23.6% relative to the previous year. Much of this increase can be attributed to the integration of RealTime (RT) data into Indiana s migrant student database, Migrant Information and Data Access System (MIDAS). RT is an Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) data collection which includes information on student enrollment and attendance. All Indiana LEAs are required to submit this weekly during the regular school year.
