Secondary Enrollment/Demographic Form - Spring Collection

 

The following is information on the spring collection of the 2001-2002 Career and Technical Education Reporting System (CTERS) 1 Report (Form #QF040) for career and technical education. This report is more commonly called the Secondary Enrollment/Demographic Form (SEDF).

 

All division career and technical education administrators received a manual that was mailed from the Office of Career and Technical Education Services on August 3, 2001. This manual contains directions for completing this report and the due date.

 

All data must be submitted to the Department of Education on or before Friday, March 1, 2002. Early submission is strongly encouraged. The SEDF data are critical to the Office of Career and Technical Education Services as the information is used for a variety of purposes, including career and technical Standards of Quality (SOQ) funds for school divisions and calculating the nontraditional enrollment federal performance standard.

 

The SEDF report must be submitted electronically (mailto: cters@pen.k12.va.us), either in the Excel spreadsheet or ASCII flat file format.

 

A custom-designed spreadsheet and detailed instructions for completing the report can be downloaded from the Department of Educations website. The complete address to access the spreadsheet is http://www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/Instruction/CTE/cters/. On this page, choose 2001-2002 Users Manual for the instructions and SEDF Template for the specialized spreadsheet. A file layout is included in the instructions for school divisions that prefer to submit the CTERS 1 data on an ASCII flat file.

 

You may contact Susan Williams (mailto: cters@pen.k12.va.us), specialist, data management for career and technical education, at 804/371-2924, if you have any questions concerning the CTERS 1 report.
