S   ONLY upload (A.K.A Lock and Load) each template ONCE per day
    (REMEMBER: Friday – Sunday act as one day.)
    S   If you push up program services, for example, more than once per day, NO
        information moves to the state. This can wreak havoc with reports especially
        when SED deadlines are looming!
    S   This is true for demographics, enrollment……too.

S   When locking program services, ALWAYS Select ALL.
    S   If you do NOT select all, the only program services that will go to Level 2 are
        the ones you selected. ALL others will be deleted.
    S   For example, if you only push up Poverty, ALL disabilities and other
        categories will be purged at the state level and your accountability reports will
        show no students with disabilities.
    S   If you have verification errors, those areas will uncheck. If you do not fix those
        errors and reselect ALL, those areas will not upload to Level 2.

S   SIRS Guidance – No manual, but the page is now searchable.
                   WHAT’S NEW?

S   NEW Beginning enrollment code:
    S   0055 – Enrolled for instructional reporting only (to be used for reporting
        students where the reporting entity does not have Title 1 accountability or CSE
        responsibility for the student – ex: BOCES)

S   NEW Ending enrollment codes:
    S   8338 – court placed in a program that does not lead to a HS diploma and is not
        an approved GED program (this was actually introduced for 2010-11).
    S   1089 – transferred to an approved GED program outside this district (use for
        court placements who transfer to an approved GED)
    S   0066 – ended enrollment for instructional purposes only (to be used to close
        enrollment records with a begin enrollment code of 0055)

S   Field 41 (District Code of Residence) of the Student Lite template is now

S   If the student changes his/her District of Residence AFTER BEDS day, this data
    element DOES NOT change

S   If the student is a resident of a state other than New York, use district code

S   If the student was not enrolled in this LEA on BEDS day, use the District of
    Residence information gathered when the student registered in the district.

S   http://www.p12.nysed.gov/irs/sirs/2011-12/District-of-Residence-Guidance-
            UNIVERSAL PRE-K

S   Change grade level from PK to PKF (pre-kindergarten full day) and PKH
    (prekindergarten half day). Populate on Enrollment record

S   Pre-Kindergarten program service
    S   Indicator of whether the PK student is:

        S    In a UPK program (program service code 902) or
        S    In an “other” PK program (program service code 990).

S   New program service codes. [Either 902 or 990 program service record MUST be
    provided for each student that has a grade level of PKF or PKH].
           UNIVERSAL PRE-K

S   If the student is in a UPK program “902”, UPK setting program service record
    must be provided from the table below:

S   Type of UPK setting
    S 1309 District-operated
    S 1320 Day care center
    S 1331 Head Start
    S 1342 Family or Group Day Care
    S 1353 Nursery School
    S 1364 BOCES
    S 1375 Special Ed 4410 Preschool
    S 1386 Nonpublic School
    S 1397 Museum
    S 1408 Library
    S 1419 Other

S   Types of Title 1 services provided in targeted assistance programs.

S   For students who are served by a Targeted Assistance Program, in addition to their
    0286 TA program service, you MUST report at least one (but can be multiple)
    Type of Title 1 services provided in targeted assistance program service record
    from the following list:
    S   0803 Reading/Language Arts
    S   0814 Mathematics
    S   0825 Science
    S   0836 Social Sciences
    S   0847 Vocational/Career
    S   0858 Other Instructional Services
    S   0869 Health, Dental and Eye Care
    S   0880 Supporting Guidance/Advocacy
    S   0891 Other Support Services

S   Initially, BOCES was scheduled to start reporting data in the 2011-12 school year

S   BOCES will be required to report starting with the 2012-13 school year

S   The Federal Department of Education has informed the state the ALL districts
    MUST participate in the Civil Rights Data Collection this year.

S   In the past, only selected districts were required to report.

S   Some of the data is currently available in your SIS but other is not.

S   This data will NOT be pulled from the SIRS and will be due sometime this
    summer (possibly August).

S   FAQ about the Federal Civil Rights Data Collection can be found at:
                 ONE DAY RULE

S   This year the transition to the One Day rule is complete.

S   Students who are enrolled in the district one day or longer are now included in the
    Grad Rate accountability group.

S   Complete information on the Cohort Changes can be found at

S   New Location Marking Period template, along with dimension values defined in
    the Marking Period Code template, allow management of both Marking Period
    and Term by location. Cannot be loaded through Level 0.

S   Only Final Grades will be reported for 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 school years.

S   Marking Period – Use the last Marking Period that a report card is issued for a
    course. Example, for a 4 Report Card school, a full year course would report the
    Final Grade as MP4, a Semester One course would use MP2 (since the course
    ends MP2) and a Semester Two course would use MP4 (since the course ends

S   Term – Suggestion: 0 for Full Year, 1 for Semester 1, 2 for Semester 2

S   Must define each Final Marking Period/Term combination for all reportable
    schools including Elementary schools.

S This is a new template used for dual purposes:
   S   It will be used to collect the underlying data needed for teacher evaluation
   S   It will also be used to collect information that can be used to generate class

S   You will note that the template includes a “Reporting Date”.

S   This date is an important differentiator regarding the purpose of the data being

S   If the data are being reported for roster purposes, the reporting date is June 30,
    2012 regardless of the actual date the course ended.

S   If the data are being reported for teacher evaluation purposes, the reporting date is
    defined as the first date of the state assessment period associated with that course.

S   The remaining fields in this template define the metrics for determining the
    amount of time an individual student was engaged in instruction by an individual

S   You will note that this metric accounts for student attendance, but not teacher

S   Staff/Student/Course template

S   Replaces Student Grade template

S   Used to collect Student Grades, Pass/Fail and Credits awarded

S   For 2011-12, only Numeric Final grades associated with Regents exams are
    required; all other grades are optional. If others are reported, make sure you’ve
    defined those marking periods too.

S   Includes an indicator distinguishing a Final Grade that was computed using a
    Regents score versus those that were not

S   Includes a new Pass/Fail Indicator; this is required for both ES courses leading to
    a state assessment and HS Regents courses

S   Includes new fields for reporting Credits Attempted and Credits Earned

S   Assessment accommodations will be scanned from the answer sheet used during test
    administration. We expect to be able to load these for you if we are loading your
    scores. If this is not possible, we will let you know.

S   For any assessments that do not use a scan able answer sheet, testing
    accommodations will be recorded in the appropriate student system and exported to
    the data warehouse using the Assessment Acc Mod Fact template

S   A list of revised assessment accommodations will become effective beginning with the
    2011-12 3-8 ELA and Math assessments during the April/May 2012 time frame.
S   Legislation requires that assessments be used in the teacher evaluation process

S   Teachers will be evaluated on the following basis:
    S 20% of evaluation based on state assessments
    S 20% based on local assessments
    S 60% based on local observation and evaluation techniques

S   These three scores will result in an overall evaluation rating on a scale of 1-4.

S   This new template is designed to collect the component scores as well as the final
    overall evaluation rating.

S   Likely that most districts will use their Human Resource software to report this.

S   SED suggests using the TEACH ID as the Local ID in the HR system. Staff ID
    must match what is reported by SIS.

S   Additional guidance about this template will be provided in the future.

S   NERIC DataFlow provides an automated process for moving data from a number of Student
    Information and Special Education Systems directly to Level 0 of the Data Warehouse.

S   This is currently available as a value-added service for districts subscribing to NERIC-
    supported Student Information and Special Education Systems. Interested districts, who are
    not currently subscribing to services for NERIC-supported SIS &SPED system, please call for
    a quote.

S   NERIC DataFlow automates the daily extraction of Student Demographic, Enrollment and
    Program Services data from the source system. Level 0 import rules are applied to the
    extracted data, error reports are generated on a daily basis and the data that passes the edit
    checks is written directly to Level 0. This automated process eliminates the need to manually
    extract files for import into Level 0 and attention can be given to correcting errors in the source
    system— on a daily basis.

S   COMING SOON! Staff Snapshot, Course, and Program services from NutriKids, SIS, and
    SPED. (Please note: Centris does charge an annual fee to connect IEP Direct.)
