Program Fact Template - RE



This template is used to track participation for specific programs; a complete list of programs to be collected can be found in Volume 2 of the PIMS User Manual. LEAs must report the actual beginning date (and if applicable, the actual ending date) for a student’s participation in a particular program during a school year. Thus, for each reporting date, each LEA will submit two types of records.

Selection Criteria

  • School where student is enrolled cannot be excluded from state reporting.
  • Programs must be set up in District Setup > Special Programs with the state defined codes attached.
  • Student cannot be excluded from state reporting.
  • Student must be enrolled into a defined-by-the-state program using Student > Special Programs functionality.
  • Students program enrollment dates must fall within the report start and end date.
