Electronic COE - Past, Present and the Future

Welcome to the New Year!!!
It is not too early to start thinking and planning for the 2016 National Migrant Education Conference.  If you don't know already, it is going to be in warm, sunny San Diago, Calafornia, April 24-27, 2016.  After what is probably going to be a long, cold winter, it will be a warm, welcome break

COE Pre-screening and Electronic COEs

Over the last couple of years, a few of our states have expressed interest in pre-screening families for eligibility before actually filling out a COE.   For these states, pre-screening families seemed useful when they were completing paper COEs and they wanted to move that pre-screening process into MIS2000 to work hand in hand with their electronic COEs.  In honor of the first state who requested this functionality (KY), we refer to this pre-screening data as the BIP (Basic Interview Pattern for Determining Eligibility).  Basically, the BIP is a short set of questions that can be used to help determine if a family is eligible for the Migrant Education Program.  The set of questions in the BIP is completely customizable to fit your needs and depending on the implementation, we can even create and transfer BIP data into a new COE if it is determined that the family is likely eligible! 

FIPS 140-2 Compliance

States that host their own MIS2000 Web systems often have special rules about security. We've designed MIS2000 to be able to accommodate pretty much any security policies the states may need to support. One of the more stringent security standards is the FIPS 140-2 specification that's used by the federal government although states are increasingly beginning to require it as well under certain conditions. The state of South Dakota has recently begun to enforce this policy and I'm pleased to say we've successfully made modifications to MIS2000 to support it.
