I have students who attend an IU class located in our elementary school. The students are also mainstreamed. ...who should submit these student for the PSSA/PASA label?
The program of attendance, in this case the IU, will submit their students to PIMS for the PSSA labels. The IU is also responsible for insuring that their students participate in the state assessment, for the ordering of test materials and for administering the assessment.
Will my K4A student get a label for WIDA Access for ELL test?
K4A students will not receive a precode label for the ACCESS for ELLs assessment. The ACCESS for ELLs is administered to students K-12. The precode file used by Metritech to generate the precode labels will only include students K-12. For kindergarten students, only students who are 5 years old participating in a traditional kindergarten program AND students who are five years old participating in the second year of a two year kindergarten program should be administered the ACCESS for ELLs assessment.

What is the LEA responsibility to report students that are receiving services outside of the district (APS, PRRI, ICP, etc.)
The answer to this question is found on page 11 of the 2014 Attribution Map.
What is your suggestion for reporting students in district Special Ed classrooms? For budget and facilities reasons we can’t offer, for example, a dedicated multiple disabilities or autistic support classroom in every building. For this reason, we place students in buildings that may not be their building of residence within the LEA. For Accountability, should we be reporting their building of residence or the building they are physically attending? Not all of these students would take the PSSA or ACCESS, but some do.

If school of residence of 9999 will be rejected, how should we be reporting student we educate in a county prison?
The school of residence will be blanked out if it is not in the DRC system (not in EPIC, 0000 or 9999).
How is the information from School Enrollment template used?
Information in the School Enrollment template is not used in the pre-code collections. The template does provide an opportunity to update enrollment data that is cumulative throughout the year.
Because the snapshot for the Precode submission is a “moving” snapshot date, would you prefer that LEAs delete students from the November Precode Student Snapshot that were reported and ended up moving during the collection/correction window?
For the Pre-Code Student Snapshot template, the snapshot date is not a true snapshot in time but just a flag in the PIMS system to indicate the 11/14/13 Student Snapshot template was uploaded. The data submitted on the 11/14/13 Student Snapshot template may be updated with the most current information at any time through the end of the collection window and again during the designated correction window.
