|SUBJECT:||2001 Fall Membership Data Collection|
Enclosed is information on the 2001 Fall Membership data collection. The collection includes the following tables:
The fall membership report must be submitted electronically, either in the Excel spreadsheet or ASCII flat file format.
A custom-designed fall membership spreadsheet and detailed instructions for completing the report can be downloaded from the Department of Educationís website at www.pen.k12.va.us by selecting "Reports" at the top of the homepage or "Data and Publications" at the bottom and then selecting "Fall Membership Report 2001-2002" from the "Data Collections" listing. The complete address to access the fall membership spreadsheet is: www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/Publications/Fall_Membership/datacoll/coll.htm.
File layouts are included in the instructions for school divisions that prefer to submit the fall membership data as an ASCII flat file. The format for the ASCII flat file layout has been revised.
Information on the contact person for the 2001-2002 fall membership report is required. Updates for the Fall Membership contact will be reported in Phase II of the School and Staff Administration Report that will be completed in mid-September.
Each contact person for the Fall Membership Report should coordinate the collection of all data for the division and submit the data by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by the due date.
Please direct any questions or comments relating to the Fall Membership Report to the e-mail address above or to Data Administration at (804) 225-2099.
