2 Agenda Enrollment changes for 2006–07. Count date. Changing enrollment Enrollment records retention. Alternative Learning Experience (ALE) WAC.
3 Apportionment Systems Re-host Project To be done in 2 parts, using $1.9 million from the 05–07 budget. 1 st part: to be completed by mid-Sept 2006, will “transform” the code from COBOL to C# and move it to new servers in a web- based environment. 2nd part: to be completed by summer 2007, will make other enhancements and changes to the new system. WSIPC and the ESDs are already involved; we will assemble user-groups for input in the process at appropriate points. We will perform parallel testing during 2006–07, but details are not final. The P-223 will continue to be independent of CSRS. We will keep you informed through the ESD enrollment contacts. Changes for 2006–07
4 Count Dates WAC 392-121-119 The 4th school day of September – even if you start school in August – even if you are an institution. The 1st school day of October through May. Running start count dates are the 1st school day of October through June. A count day may be determined by an individual school or grade start date. Students are counted as of the count date. It is a snapshot.
5 Revising Enrollment WAC 392-117-045 During the school year a district may make changes directly on their system. After the August reporting date, a district may submit changes to their ESD until November; after that, on paper to OSPI subject to the next 2 points. Enrollment may be changed until the audit exit meeting with SAO. Once audit starts, the auditor must be provided copies of any revisions. After exit meeting, districts can only report revisions as part of the audit resolution process.
