CDE has recently updated the coding options for the Grant/Project Funding Source field as it relates to Special Education staff. Historically, all SPED Teachers and Assistants needed to be coded 4027 (IDEA) or 3130 (ECEA). The 22-23 File Layout changed this so that all SPED Staff should be coded 0001 (Local and Intermediate Project/Grants) or 3000 (State Project Grants). CDE has reversed course and will now be allowing all SPED Teachers and Assistants to be coded with 4027, 3130, 0001 or 3000. Starting Point files with historical coding in this field can be changed or left as is.
Schools are currently receiving ST022 District of Residence errors related to zero-filling this field for Contractors. Per CDE requirements, this field should be zero-filled for contractors, but is currently being flagged. CSI is reaching out to CDE, but this issue can be resolved in the meantime by adding two zeros rather than four.
CDE has recently updated how staff can be reported who teach at different grade levels. Schools no longer need to separate out grades K-6 and 7-12 into two records on their Staff Assignment file. All grade levels can be reported on one record.
