Data Element

The date and time that the report completed, in the format MM-DD-YYYY and hh;mm;ss.




The district number.





The school number, based on the selection at report runtime.




The reporting period selected at report runtime.




The value to increment by entered at report runtime.




This value is a combination of the district number, school number, current date, and the File ID entered at report runtime.







The grade level being analyzed for days taught. Each grade level taught at the current school during the report date range is included on a separate line. Additional records are included for each Special/Secondary Grade Code assigned to a student. The report determines the grade levels to report based on student records, not the grade level range assigned to the school.

If the student’s grade level is -1 (preschool), then the student’s grade level is reported as 62.

If the student’s grade level is 0 (kindergarten), then the student’s grade level is reported as 64.

If the student’s grade level is neither -1 nor 0, then the student’s grade level is reported.




The number of days taught for the grade level during the report date range. The report runs a membership calculation (ADM) for the students enrolled in the school during the report date range.

Note: The value must be less than or equal to the number of days within the reporting period.

For reporting month 01, the maximum number of days is 66 and for month 09, the maximum number of days is 45. For months 2 through 8, the maximum number of days is 27. For month 10 the maximum number of days is 60.
