  • Be specific and give examples in questions

  • Keep to the point

  • Accept that constructive disagreements are okay

  • Work to create decisions your team can support

Data requirements
Data Requirements

Subject Areas– This is the 2 digit code representing the subject area for the course in which the student is participating. From the SCED table for secondary level courses, and the NEW – Prior-to-Secondary SCED CODES list for elementary and non assigned middle school courses


  • For students in grade or setting 00-05 or 30: Must be a valid Prior To Secondary SCED Code

  • For students in grade or setting 06-08 or 14: Must be a valid Prior to Secondary SCED Code OR Secondary SCED Code

  • For students in grades 09-12: Must be a valid Secondary SCED code or “00” for approved CTE Courses, with no Course Identifier Code

  • If Subject Area Code = 01-22, then Final Grade is Required

  • If Subject Area Code = 01-22, then Credit Granted is Required

Special education
Special Education


  • Code “99” for those students reported in Special Education Elementary or Special Education Ungraded – Grade 14


  • If you have difficulty identifying Teacher/Student Data Link course codes for transition students, grade 14 students, those with significant disabilities who do not participate in traditional courses and other students whose cognitive abilities may be within the average range, but they cannot meet the basic expectations of courses the district offers in at least one content area. For instance, this might be a student who has a very significant learning disability that makes is impossible to meet basic expectations in one typically required class, even with accommodations—or a students with a severe emotional impairment who cannot meet basic expectations because of his/her disability. In order to comply with USED requirements, Michigan must link each student through age 21 with at least one teacher through a course code.

    Using the Prior to Secondary Book

    For students participating in a self-contained classroom all day, we recommend the following:

    73039 Prior-to-Secondary Education (p. 75)

    Code 73039, representing prior-to-secondary education courses that are not grade-differentiated, should be used when a state or locality does not differentiate courses by either grade level or subject area or when standards apply to a range of consecutive grades (e.g., “by third grade, students should know and be able to do…”) and a multiplicity of subject-area content.


Data requirements1
Data Requirements

Course Identifier Code– This 3 digit course identifier code is for the course in which the student is participating. From the SCED table for secondary level courses, from the NEW – Prior-to-Secondary SCED CODES list for elementary level courses and some middle school courses–


  • Must be valid NCES Course ID when the Subject Area Code is reported = 01-22

  • Must be the NEW Prior-to-Secondary SCED Course ID’s when the Subject Area = 51-73


  • For Subject Area Code “00” for CTE State Approved Programs you would leave this blank.

Data requirements2
Data Requirements

Local Course ID– The course identification code assigned by the educating entity. The purpose is to allow the district to send student record updates for specific courses. (i.e. interim grade followed by final grade) –


Local Course Section Number– The course section number assigned by the educating entity – REQUIRED FIELD

Local Course Title– The course name assigned by the educating entity – REQUIRED FIELD

Data requirements3
Data Requirements

08 – Concurrent Enrollment – NEW


Data requirements4
Data Requirements

Academic Year– The academic year in which the student last attended the course (e.g. 2004-2005) – OPTIONAL FIELD BUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Even though the field is optional – Why use the Academic Year?

If the grade is changed for a student in a subsequent year because of a local appeal process, the updated grade is not required to be reported BUT if the district chooses to report the updated grade, they may do so by ensuring that the correct Academic Year is selected.

Data requirements5
Data Requirements

Credits Granted– The amount of credits granted to the student in Carnegie units for the course or a section of a course (eg., 1.0, .50, etc) – CONDITIONAL FIELD

  • Required when Subject Area Code = 01-22 Secondary SCED with the following exceptions:

    Grade or Setting = 14 (Special Education)

    Completion Status = “AU” Audited

    Completion Status = “OE” Ongoing Enrolled

Data requirements6
Data Requirements

Course Grade– The grade the student received for completing the course – REQUIRED FOR SECONDARY AND OPTIONAL FOR ELEMENTARY


  • These should be board approved grades, what would be on a high school transcript

  • Required when subject area code = 01-22

  • Not required for elementary subject area codes = 51-71

  • Not required for students reported in grade 14 (special education)

  • Not required for completion status of “AU” Audit

  • If the student did not receive a grade for the course, course and student information is not required

Data requirements7
Data Requirements

Completion Status– The students standing for this course when the student is NO longer a participant – REQUIRED FIELD

Valid Codes:

AU – Audit

TO – Tested Out

OE – Ongoing Enrolled

CP – Completed/Passed

CF – Completed/Failed

WE – Withdrawn/Exited

WF – Withdrawn/Failed

WP – Withdrawn/Passed

CS – Completed When students are reported as Grade 14 special education ONLY

I - Incomplete

Data requirements8
Data Requirements

Teacher ID– The Personnel Identification Code (PIC), as assigned in the Registry of Educational Personnel (REP), for each teacher responsible for some or all of the instruction for this course – REQUIRED FIELD

  • Must be a Valid PIC. The PIC will be validated to the REP to ensure that the PIC exists. Additional checks will be done post-collection to analyze the relationship of the PIC to the reporting entity.

  • At least one PIC per student with the exceptions of Early Childhood, Adult Education, Home Schooled, Non Public School Students.

  • REP will be modified to provide a PIC lookup feature outside of normal collection windows. This will be available to REP authorized users ONLY.


  • Do not report if the Subject Area Code is “00” State Approved CTE Program

  • Do not report if Course Type = 07 Dual Enrollment/Early Middle College

  • The teacher responsible for the STUDENT outcomes should be the one reported. You can report multiple teachers for one Course. It is a locals decision as to which teacher(s) will be held accountable for the student’s performance

  • The PIC numbers are used in TSDL to identify teachers

  • REP contains PIC numbers used to identify teachers

  • REP has the information on teacher certifications

  • REP has the ability to look up PIC numbers using the new PIC Service Application 24/7

  • MDE/CEPI will be matching teacher PIC numbers between TSDL and REP to guarantee that teachers are teaching within their certifications

  • Assessment growth data will be linked to the individual teachers through the use of the PIC number and use in the evaluation process

The new rep pic service
The New REP PIC Service

The REP PIC service is an online application that allows authorized users to obtain PICs for staff at any time 24/7. The REP PIC service will include the following data:

  • First and Last Name (Middle Name when available)

  • Gender

  • Date of Birth

  • Social Security Number

  • Michigan Credential License Number (when available)
