TO: Division Superintendents

FROM: Patricia I. Wright, Superintendent of Public Instruction

SUBJECT: 2010-2011 End-of-Year Student Record Collection and Miscellaneous Statistics
                  DUE: July 15, 2011

To comply with the information and reporting requirements for adequate yearly progress, report cards, and performance indicators of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the Department of Education is conducting the End-of-Year Student Record Collection (EOY SRC) for the 2010-2011 school year.

The 2010-2011 End-of-Year Student Record Collection should reflect students' records as of the last day of the 2010-2011 school year. The End-of-Year Collection also includes a Web-based entry form to collect the number of days in session as well as the number of instructional hours at each school. Again this year, the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Completer Demographics data will be collected via the EOY SRC.

The EOY SRC will also be used to collect and report the Special Education Tuition Reimbursement for the second semester.  The data requested will be used for claiming reimbursement for services provided by certain regional special education programs that have been approved by the state. The dollar amounts your division will report will likely be obtained from your special education office.

A detailed listing of the data elements on the student record, the aggregate data collected on the Web-based form, and instructions for completing and submitting the data can be found on the Virginia Department of Education's Web site at: http://www.doe.virginia.gov/info_management/data_collection/student_record_collection/index.shtml

Data are required by the Department of Education on or before the closing date of July 15, 2011. Early submission and verification is strongly encouraged.

The End-of-Year Student Record Collection will be open and accessible through the Single Sign-on for Web Systems (SSWS) on June 6, 2011

Questions or comments relating to the End-of-Year Student Records Data Collection should be directed to Educational Applications at RESULTSHELP@doe.virginia.gov.
