    • District, School, Course, Section and Student Pages
      • DSED-1. Does the LEA have any students enrolled in any distance educational courses?
        Texas-specific: Reported value is calculated based on students enrolled at any point in the year in classes with Special Explanation code Z or Non-Campus Based codes 02, 04, 05 or 11.
      • HSEE-1. Did this LEA operate a High School Equivalency Exam preparation program for students aged 16-19?
        Texas-specific: Reported value is calculated based on students enrolled with a Flex Attendance Program Type code 2 at any point during the year.
    • Student: ENRL-2b. Enrollment of English Learner Students – EL Students in Programs. Texas-specific: Reported value is calculated based on students enrolled on Snapshot with ESL or Bilingual Indicator code other than 0 or an Alternative Language Program code other than 00.
    • Incident Management
      • Action Attributes > CRDC Offense Category: the following codes are now flagged as obsolete and sorted to the bottom of the list.

        • Obsolete 7 - Physical Attack w/firearm/explosive^
        • Obsolete 10 - Threat Phys Attack w/firearm/exp^

    • New Calculation: OFFN-1: Offenses - Number of Incidents. When reporting the number of incidents of rape and sexual assault, the total number of offenses is the combined total of the incident counts for "OFFN-4: Offenses - Number of Incidents Committed by Student" plus the incident count of "OFFN-5: Offenses - Number of Incidents Committed by School Staff".
    • Legal Gender: The legal gender field is now examined first. If populated, that value is used; otherwise, the value from the standard gender field is reported.
    • Logic for Algebra Classes: Enrolled and Passed (COUR-1a – COUR-4b and COUR-6a – COUR-7b)
      • The OCR definition of enrolled is based on a single day at the end of the year.
      • The student is considered enrolled if the student has a final grade for the second part of Algebra I (course sequence 2).
      • The student is considered as having passed Algebra I if the second part of the course has an earned credit value > 0. The identification of final grades now references Texas Stored Code Mapping instead of the prior common CRDC store code mapping.
