Reporting Alternative Education Programs
There is a need to accurately and consistently report alternative education programs.
Starting in October, alternative education programs can be reported in EPIMS and SCS as the location where a course is taught if the course in not taught in a school. If the course is taught in a school, the school code must be used for WA06 and SCS03.
In EPIMS, WA06 will be changed to identify the location where a course is taught, similar to SCS03.
Districts will be able to report school codes or valid 8-digit district alternative education program codes in both WA06 and SCS03.
District alternative education program codes must be registered with ESE.
Alternative Education program codes will be cross-validated between EPIMS and SCS so students and teachers will be linked at the classroom level by the alternative education program code OR by the school code.
