Standard Course Codes - Development Approach
A project of this complexity requires a structured approach to development and project management. Our development approach features:
- Well defined phases of approximately 4-6 months each over the 2+ year project duration
- Dedicated Project Team with members from various units, agencies, and stakeholder groups
The Department will implement the SSCC modules as they are developed and will promote the adoption and implementation to all stakeholders identified in the Project Charter.

Beginning June 2011 through November 2011, CDE will pilot the Standard Course Code System. The pilot will allow districts to get a jump start on mapping their course codes before the system is required in Spring 2012.
In Spring 2012 all districts will be required to map their local course codes to the state standard codes.
As the SSCC project progresses it will focus on interoperability by providing connectors to the following types of applications:
- Department of Higher Education
- Office of Information Technology's CUPID project
- District information systems
- Department of Human Services
- Our community of stakeholder interest, contributions to enhancements and maintenance will ensure sustained development.
- The technology and architecture of the SSCC system will evolve to keep up with new standards, tool releases and trends.
