Standard Course Codes - Project Details
The Statewide Standard Course Code system is used to load a single file containing course code mappings. A mapping shows the relationship between the Local Education Agency's local course codes to a statewide standard course code. The Colorado Department of Education is currently allowing LEAs to use SCED version through version 6 codes for the statewide standard course codes. The course code mappings are required as part of the Teacher Student Data Link collection, and LEAs must map courses prior to submitting student and educator course data.
Local Education Agencies are still required to update any mappings containing deprecated SCED codes from versions 1.0 or 2.0. LEAs will need to map all their local courses to a statewide standard course code, including electives, courses offered at post-secondary institutions (concurrent enrollment), online courses, credit recovery courses, and any courses LEAs offer to their students. Starting in the 2020-2021 school year, the SCED codes from version 6 will need to be utilized. A crosswalk for earlier versions and version 6 is available below.
The Statewide Standard Course Code system is used to compare course offerings across school districts and longitudinal analysis. There are a variety of users and reports that utilize the SSCC data for the Office of Civil Rights, and the Student Course Participation and Achievement Report.
