Teacher/Student Data Link: A Powerful Connection for Improving Educator Effectiveness
Standard Course Codes
The Statewide Standard Course Code (SSCC) system is a sub-project of Phase III of the Educator Identifier Project.
The purpose for developing the Standard Course Codes is to align district course codes to a state standard course code for the purposes of establishing a reliable teacher/student data link. Standardizing the way state and district data systems record course codes is a critical component in ensuring the teacher/student data link is correct.
If Colorado makes optimum use of the codes, they can become the codes used by most or all districts on student transcripts. The standard course codes developed are a system of numerical codes that are used to describe the courses taught by educators.
By November 1, 2012 all districts assign an individual responsible for the project and that individual is required to have a login for the Statewide Standard Course Code system.
By February 1, 2013, all districts complete mapping and upload their middle and high school courses.
May 1, 2013, all districts complete mapping and upload their preschool and elementary school courses.
