Improvements to Make STEP More User-Friendly Modify import/append procedures Reformat error log - add student name, give more specific information about error Disable “fuzzy match on date” and “RCT for student not eligible for safety net” errors Redefine certain program service elements to be district-level (disability, grade, 504 status, safety net eligibility)
Other Changes New program service code for “walk-ins” New program service codes for school choice and supplemental services Require legitimate school code - prohibit BEDS = “0000” and “0999” New exit reason code for students who earned IEP diploma or local certificate and continued enrollment New edits to: –prohibit overlapping grade records –detect invalid scores in assessments table (ABS or EX) –require gender when data are keyentered
