SUBJECT:

2005-2006 Summer Student Record Collection and Miscellaneous Statistics

 

DUE: August 31, 2006

 

To comply with the information and reporting requirements for adequate yearly progress, report cards and performance indicators of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), the Department of Education is conducting a Summer Student Record Collection for the 2005-2006 school year. Informational Supts. Memo No. 139, dated July 22, 2005, included specific information regarding the student record collection and reporting time frames.

The newly created 2005-06 Summer Student Record Collection should reflect ONLY summer school graduate information. Only graduates who earned a diploma during summer school should be included in the 2005-06 Summer Student Record Collection.

A summer submission is required for every school division in order to generate the Final Term Graduate Report. A PowerPoint presentation regarding the new Summer Student Record Collection can be found at http://www.doe.virginia.gov/VDOE/Publications/student-coll/05-06/SRC2006.ppt.

A detailed listing of the data elements on the student record, miscellaneous statistics, and instructions for completing and submitting the data can be found on the Virginia Department of Educations website at http://www.doe.virginia.gov/VDOE/Publications/student-coll/new_coll.html.

 

 

Data are required by the Department of Education on or before the closing date of August 31, 2006. Early submission and verification is strongly encouraged as the Department of Education intends to publicly release final graduation data based on the student record soon after the closing of this data collection. The Summer Student Record Collection will be open and accessible through the Single Sign-on for Web Systems (SSWS) by August 10, 2006.

 

Questions or comments relating to the 2005-06 Summer Student Record Collection should be directed to Educational Applications at RESULTSHELP@doe.virginia.gov or (804) 786-3112.
