18 Question: Should all teachers be certificated? Answer: Yes. Example: A Career Technical Education (CTE) teacher in a skill center is a contracted person teaching a cosmetology course. This teacher must hold some type of certification just as any other K-12 classroom teacher. In this case, the appropriate certification would be a CTE certificate or a conditional certificate. A certificate number consists of six digits and a letter. 18

19 Question: A contracted teacher who is employed by an ESD or another type of agency provides instructional services to students. Does the district report the teachers certificate number? Answer: Yes. Example: A school district purchases the services of a special education teacher through an ESD cooperative to provide instruction for students in special education programs. 19

20 Question:Race and ethnicity are currently not asked for in the staff table. Will this information be asked for in the future? Answer:This data is currently collected in the S275 report. We do anticipate some alignment changes to meet federal requirements. Work is in progress to address this issue. 20

21 Question:The staff type code appendix does not include all of the codes based on the S275 manual. Will additional codes be added? Answer:No. We do not anticipate adding additional codes at this time. The purpose for collecting teacher data is related to classroom instruction and the ability to meet federal reporting requirements. 21

22 Question:Are there tentative timelines for HR type reports starting next year using CEDARS data? Answer:Yes. We are working on details and will have additional information before the beginning of the school year. 22

23 Question:It appears that the Staff Type Code is really the same as Duty Code in the S275. Will the new CEDARS manual be updated to reflect this or at least include the description in the wording so people understand they are the same? Answer:This will be reviewed prior to publishing the next version of the manual. 23

24 Question:Who is the contact at OSPI for error messages related to staff? Answer:Customer Support (360) or 1 (800) s s 24
