May 2011 NYSED Memo


Comprehensive course catalog

Comprehensive Course Catalog

  • New York State’s comprehensive course code catalog will be adopted from the NCES SCED identifiers.

  • SED intends to make a “quick reference guide” subset available to assist in reporting.

  • LEAs would not be required to adopt the State codes, but they will have to map to the codes for reporting purposes in the 2011-12 school year.


Many states have already adopted nces sced codes

Many States Have Already Adopted NCES SCED Codes

  • In a recent survey, only 8 states said they did not plan to adopt NCES course codes

  • Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas, and more are among early adopters


Benefits of a state course catalog

NCES SCED

Since state codes were based on NCES SCED course codes, where can I see the NCES SCED documents?

The NCES SCED for secondary can be found here:

The NCES SCED for prior-to-secondary can be found here:

Secondary vs. Prior-to-Secondary ?

  • Generally, secondary courses will earn high school credits

  • Review the introductions and information about the NCES coding structure


Tips and suggestions1

Tips and suggestions

  • IMPORTANT: Remember that in addition to state course codes local course codes and local titles will be collected and used in reporting. Schools do not have to adopt state codes….merely map to them

  • FIRST: Map ‘courses ending in state exams’ to required state course codes (no options)


Tips and suggestions2

Tips and suggestions

  • Be positive

  • Share the May 2011 memo

  • Schools should focus (limit craziness)
