Summary

The guide describes the mission, objective, and function of the Migrant Education Resources List and Information Network (MERLIN) and defines the scopes of interest currently identified as national priorities in migrant education. MERLIN is a federally funded project designed to improve interstate and intrastate coordination of migrant education activities through the development of a comprehensive national database of educational resources in a range of scopes relevant to the many needs of migrants. MERLIN's objective is to improve overall efficiency while providing a continuity of educational experience for the mobile child. MERLIN's major resource categories are a human resource file of migrant education experts, a programs file of projects specifically geared to migrant needs, and a special curricular methods and materials file. Current scopes of interest are the Migrant Student Record Transfer System, administrative needs, identification and recruitment, parent and community involvement, basic skills, culture, English as a second language, early childhood, special education, dropout prevention, credit accrual and graduation, career education, vocational education, and health and human services. Full implementation of MERLIN will provide administrators, teachers, educational researchers, support staff, and operating agencies with a current list of resources available from across the United States and Puerto Rico.
