||RIDE - latest on EOY consolidated State Reporting
||Dr. Ken Gu - SEA
|We want to first thank you for your efforts in the 2003-04 end-of-year consolidated reporting. We anticipate that this year will be equally successful, and are writing to share some information that we think will be helpful.
In the next few weeks, you will be submitting the year-end consolidated information on student demographics, enrollment, attendance, program participation status and next year’s school location. Because the collected information through this consolidated reporting will be used for State Aid, the AYP related calculations and the Fall testing, the quality and timeliness of the data are therefore most critical.
When preparing the data for submission, please make sure that the information is most up-to-date. Please work with your program directors and coordinators to ensure that you have the latest and correct status code for program participation, including student’s IEP, sec504, LEP, Title1, Lunch, Migrant, Homeliness and CT education. Students may have multiple enrollment records, and thus multiple enrollments with different exit codes are expected. Some students may be attending your district from another district, some of your district’s students may be enrolled in outplacement programs, you need to review the special rules and procedures to report these students. You also need to be prepared for the extra time it takes to gather the attendance records from the schools where you students are out-placed.
Before you sign off the reporting at the end, please make sure all of the duplicated enrollment records have been resolved as well as any other data errors. It is always a good practice to compare this year’s data against last year’s and check for reasonability and consistency. Program related data should be reviewed by program coordinators, pupil summary data by your business managers, school level data by school principals and district level data by superintendents.
Collected information through this consolidated reporting will also be reviewed and analyzed by RIDE’s program officers. As we did last year, we will generate and “publish” the key statistical data for you to review, which includes statistics on the Average Daily Membership by district of residence, the attendance rate, the graduation rate, the Lunch statistics, and the Charter school enrollment.
