Release Note


22-23 STARS Courses Template Updates

NM Courses Template: Version 2.7

The Courses template has been updated and the Pre-Advanced Placement Indicator column will be blank because it is no longer required.


22-23 STARS Off-Site Data Collection Changes & New Language Codes

The following late data collection changes have been made:

  • Additional Language Codes:

    • 104 - Uzbek

    • 105 - Lakota

  • New Child Count fields

    • On the Edit School page, a new field is now available to indicate the school is a PED Recognized Off-Site Building.


    • On the Special Education tab, the following new fields have been added under a new Off-Site Student header:

      • Off-Site Student - Building Providing Services

        • S_NM_STU_X.OSS_Service

      • Off-Site Student - Responsible School

        • S_NM_STU_X.OSS_Responsible

          • Note: The Off-Site fields noted above are to be used by districts that have PED recognized Off-Site buildings due to Location Code values of 993 & 998 being retired (unless your LEA has permission to continue to use them from PED).

          • If your LEA has one or more Off-Site buildings, the field that needs to be populated depends on how the student is enrolled:

          • If the student is enrolled in the Off-Site building (in PowerSchool) that is providing the services, populate the Off-Site Student - Responsible School field with the building that is responsible for the student. This value will then be pulled into the Sped Snapshot template for element 69 (Child Count Location Code) and the Off-Site building that is providing the services will populate element 2 (Location Code)

          • If the student is enrolled in the building that is responsible for the student (in PowerSchool), populate the Off-Site Student - Building Providing Services field with the building that is providing the services (PED recognized Off-Site buildings must have the new school-level field mentioned above set). This responsible school number will be pulled into the Sped Snapshot template for element 2 (Location Code). Element 69 (Child Count Location Code) will be blank for these students.
