|MEMORANDUM NO. 003-2012-13 – Elementary and Middle School Course Codes|
To: Superintendents, Principals, Special Education Directors, Technology Directors, Registrars, and Other District Administrators
From: Doug Kosty, Assistant Superintendent, Office of Assessment and Information Services
Re: Elementary and Middle School Course Codes
The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) is in the process of adopting a nationally developed school course classification system, (School Codes for the Exchange of Data (SCED)) for elementary and middle schools. The SCED code framework mirrors the secondary course code framework currently used by the Oregon Department of Education.
ODE is moving forward with adoption of the SCED codes and districts will need to implement these codes beginning in the 2013-14 school year. ODE will be working with the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) to ensure the new course codes are aligned with licensure information.
There will also be the option of using subject specific grade level codes. More information on grade level and subject specific codes can be found at http://nces.ed.gov/pubsearch/pubsinfo.asp?pubid=2011801.
If you have questions or need additional information, please contact Anna Haley, Research Analyst at the Department of Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-947-2561.
