We have courses for multi-grade self-contained classes. I am getting fatal errors on the Master Schedule Collection because the SCED codes for multi-grade courses were removed. Are there new codes for these types of classes that will be accepted for MSC?
These codes were retired so that special education could get a better picture of what is being taught to their students. Instead of the multi-grade codes, you would need to break down the class into grade level or curriculum. For example, a 6-8 math class would be broken down into Grade 6 Math, Grade 7 Math, and Grade 8 and the students would be assigned to the class of their grade level.
Why isn’t our CTE course showing up on the SEDF?
Check that your SCED code is a CTE course. If your course does not have a CTE SCED code, it will not appear on the SEDF report because only CTE classes appear on the report.
How should we report elementary level EL teachers on the MSC? The crosswalk makes it appear that we should only be coding secondary level teachers.
Since all general SCED codes can be used for any grade level, you can use SCED code 01008 with a VA Extended Description of I, II, III, IV, or V.
We have several students who are taking a class that is provided by the local community college. The students pay for the class but we provide the space and the computer. Should we report these courses on the MSC?
Yes, these would be included if your division is awarding credit to the students for these courses. If this is the case, then the local community college would be reported like any other contracted provider.
