PSSR-229768CRDC Final Grade Store Codes Page

One of the elements that CRDC reports on is how many students passed Algebra I. To derive this information, the valid Store Code for the class Final Grade needs to be defined. Some schools may store it in S1/S2, some may store it in F1 or Y1, and so on.

This page allows each school to define what Store Code to look at to find the Final Grade, based on the Term of a particular class. This Final Grade Store Code mapping page may be accessed either through the School CRDC page (the link, Vermont Final Grade Store Code Mapping, is found under the heading COUR-4a/b. Students Who Passed Algebra I), or can be accessed from the Edit School page, just above the Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) link.
