Appendix A: Minimum Data Elements

The following table presents the proposed requirements for the minimum data elements that a State shall collect and maintain for the purpose of electronically exchanging, among the States, educational and health information for all migratory students.

The table lists the data elements by: (1) A data element identification number, (2) a code that identifies the primary user function(s) for which the data element is required, (3) the name of the data element, and (4) a data element definition.

In regard to the primary user functions for which a data element is required, the letter “E” indicates that the data element is required to help guidance counselors, school registrars, or migrant education specialists with the timely and efficient enrollment of migratory students in a school in the community in which the children currently reside. The letter “P” indicates that the data element is required to help guidance counselors or migrant education specialists with the proper placement of migratory students into courses and/or programs at the appropriate grade level. The letter “G” indicates that the data element is required to help guidance counselors or migrant education specialists with the provision of academic counseling that supports the completion of courses and the accrual of credits needed for graduation.

In addition, the data elements are grouped into one of five categories of data: (1) Data elements that describe a student, (2) data elements that describe a school or project, (3) data elements that describe the student's graduation plan, (4) data elements that describe a student's course history, and (5) data elements that describe a student's assessment information.

Finally, although the data elements are listed once, a number of the data elements will be used for multiple entries in a migrant student record (e.g., “course title” will be used for each course in which a migratory student is enrolled). Start Printed Page 39377
