SUBJECT:

2006-2007 Summer Student Record Collection and Miscellaneous Statistics

DUE: August 31, 2007

 

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 the Summer Student Record Collection for the 2006-2007 school year. Informational Supts. Memo No. 127, dated June 29, 2007, included specific information regarding the student record collection and reporting time frames.

The 2006-2007 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 2006-2007 Summer Student Record Collection.

Every school division must complete a summer submission in order to generate the Final Term Graduate Report. The Final Term Graduate Report shows data that will be reported for your division. A detailed listing of the data elements on the student record 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, 2007. 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 1, 2007.

 

Questions or comments relating to the 2006-07 Summer Student Record Collection should be directed to Educational Applications at RESULTSHELP@doe.virginia.gov or (804) 786-3112.
