AY 2012 Field AdditionFERPA Privacy Flag • WHAT IS FERPA? The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, also known as the Buckley Amendment, protects the privacy of student records. • The Act provides the student with a right to inspect and review educational records, the right to seek to amend those records, and a right to limit disclosure of information from the records, with some exceptions. • Applies to all institutions that are recipients of federal funding. • The regulations can be found in 34 CFR Part 99
AY 2012 Field Addition FERPA Privacy Flag • New FERPA privacy flag field is being added to students info file (one character field at the end of the file) • Purpose: Flag indicates that a student has requested a privacy flag on their educational records. • Valid choices will be yes (Y) or no (N) • Flag will be required for AY 2012
AY 2012 Field Addition FERPA Privacy Flag • Why?Compliance with FERPA • As part of the statewide longitudinal database initiative, KBOR is sharing information with other state agencies and National Student Clearinghouse. • To comply with FERPA, flagged records will not be shared with other entities.
Additional FERPA Privacy Reminder • Institutions should NEVER e-mail identifying information, such as SSN, to KBOR. • Any file containing SSN’s should be sent via secure FTP. • KBOR has an upload function on the web that is secure.
AY 2012 Field Addition Graduation Date • A new field is being added to the completions file to collect the month and year of graduation. • Why? Reconciling graduation rates to institutional numbers and IPEDS • We may also ask for cohort exclusions • This field will be required for AY 2012 collection.
AY 2012 Change Registrations File • Outcome field should be populated with actual letter grade when institution gives letter grades for courses • Accepted values of A,B,C,D will be added • Why? This information may be needed to support future funding initiatives

KHEDS Change AY 2012 Program Inventory/Course Inventory/CWP’s What you can do now: • Add new programs, even those that have been aligned • Current programs may be modified for 2012 (including only Summer 2011, Fall 2011, and Spring 2012) • Courses may be added or modified to reflect 2012 curriculum • Add courses for new programs
KHEDS Change AY 2012 Program Inventory/Course Inventory/CWP’s What you can’t do now: • Do not modify programs to reflect 2013 (Summer 2012, Fall 2012, and Spring 2013) When can programs/courses be modified for 2013? • Functionality coming in May with release of new PI/CI/CWP
KHEDS Change AY 2012 Program Inventory Distance Education Flag • Initially populated by KBOR according to survey sent to institutions last Fall • Institutions will now be responsible for populating and maintaining field • Yes or No Why? The Kansas Board of Regents, based on KS Statutes which stipulate that KBOR will "develop and implement a comprehensive plan for the utilization of distance learning technologies," is collecting data about which programs are delivered through these technologies and reporting on this information annually to the Board.
KHEDS Change AY 2012 Program Inventory Distance Education Definition • Distance education is defined as "either an asynchronous or synchronous instructional delivery system in which faculty and students are physically separated in place or time. Teaching and learning are supported by a wide spectrum of existing and evolving media.” • For purposes of reporting, any program in which the proportion of content delivered via distance learning is 50% or more will be considered as a distance education program. • These offerings will include those offered wholly online and blended or hybrid programs in which a substantial proportion of the content is delivered through mediated delivery technology to facilitate such activities as online discussions, interactive television, and limited numbers of face‐to‐face meetings.
Course Inventory Transfer Flag • Addition of flag to identify courses approved for automatic transfer as recommended by Transfer and Articulation Advisory Council (TAAC) and approved by Kansas Board of Regents
Course Inventory Transfer Flag • 17 general education courses approved at January KBOR meeting • University course information will come from registrations/sections in KSPSD • Common course IDs are coming • More information will be available at June KBOR conference
AY 2012 ReminderNew Undergrads File • Critical fields for P20 Database • Field:High School Grad Date • Matching students between systems, defining cohort • Field:First Term Enrolled • Measuring cohort progress • Field: Student Type • For matching between systems, it is critical to know if they are first-time freshman or transfers
AY 2012 ReminderKSPSD Collections 20th Day Definition for Collections • Students enrolled on 20th day • Students who are enrolled in a course that begins and ends before the 20th day • Students enrolled in a course that starts after the 20th day provided that they are still enrolled as of the course’s census day • Needed for consistency in reporting Note: KHEER collection also uses 20th day
KSPSD Reminder • New Race/Ethnicity fields are required • KBOR generates reporting race from race/ethnicity fields • Old Primary Ethnicity field is filler – WE DO NOT USE even if institution populates field
KSPSD Reminder SAPP programs are not eligible for Perkins funding starting in AY 2012
KSPSD Terminology • First Time Freshman • Hold-over terminology of freshman is confusing • Enter whether the student is a first-time after high school grad/GED entering student into any postsecondary • Enrolled Flags & New Undergrads files • NOT a definition change – just updating KHEDS manual to make the definition clearer.
Social Security Number Revised Language in KHEDS manual Enter the federally assigned Social Security Number (SSN) if available. (This information is used to tie individuals to Department of Labor information for longitudinal data analysis. If the SSN is not provided, this information will not be available.)
