• Out of Certification Reports (added 7/17/17)

    The Office of Teaching Initiatives has reviewed an issue with the 3116 Assignment code for 6th Grade English and advised on rerunning the reports to remove some teachers deemed to have appropriate certification. Notification will be sent to CEOs when the reports are posted to the Business Portal.

    We do not know at this point when that will be.  The SED timeline will be adjusted as needed.

  • Clarification of 4+1 Graduation Pathway Options (added 5/4/2017)

    Reporting Career Path Code “HUM”
    Students must always be reported with Career Path Code “HUM” if they passed one Regents or Department-approved alternative in English, Math, and Science and two Regents exams in Social Studies, regardless of whether or not the student also passed additional Regents examinations, Department-approved alternatives, pathway assessments in the Arts, Career and Technical Education, or Biliteracy (LOTE) assessments, and/or met the requirement of a CDOS pathway.

    Students should only be reported with a Career Path Code other than “HUM” if the student passed only one Social Studies Regents examination and passed an additional Department-approved pathway assessment or met the requirements for the CDOS pathway (others besides HUM or NONE), or if the student received a credential but no diploma (NONE).

    Please click here to reference the complete April 2017 NYSED memo to clarify the 4+1 Graduation Pathway Options.

  • Additional Level 0 Automated Loads (added 4/3/2017)

    We are excited to announce an enhancement to your Level 0 service.  Starting Monday, April 10th, we will begin automating the loading process for several additional data files.  Specifically, assessment, student daily attendance, day calendar, staff/student/course and course instructor assignment data elements will be imported daily.  Additionally, as you are aware, student lite (demographics) and student entry exit (enrollment) files have been imported daily since February 6th.  As a result of these enhancements, users will have access to current data in Level 0 each morning.

    Please note, data is not being automatically loaded to the State.  Data must always be reviewed in Level 0 by your district to correct any applicable errors before being locked and requested to be sent up to the State. If this data is loaded to the State more frequently, it should help to reduce your UIAS report errors.

    If you have any questions about this transition, please contact Dan Chmielewski at 361-2700 Option 5.

  • NYSED allowing changes to Grad Rate data (added 2/27/17) 

    There were specific schools and districts that reported finding graduation rate data errors after the collection deadline.  Due to the major discrepancies for these schools, districts, and regions, the Department will release an updated 2012 cohort graduation rate on the public data site

    Data received in L0H (Level 0 Historical) by Thursday, March 23rd, and any applicable August Grads for the 2016-17 SY, will be used by the Department to update the 2012 Cohort Grad Rate.  LEAs should be making those changes in Level 0 Historical now so they are in place by Thursday, March 23rd.  

    Please note: If changes are made to Graduation Rate after March 23rd, the changes will still be received through the end of year / close of the L2 Container (now August 25, 2017), but only the corrections received by Thursday, March 23rd will be reflected in the public data site update.
