Additional SIF SCS Terms – SIF transmission of SCS data includes multiple course term records for each student. The DOE expects to receive a record indicating each term the student was scheduled into the course as well as the course term code representing the combination of terms (ie. Full Year, Semester 1, Third Trimester, Multiple Non-consecutive Quarters, etc.). For example, a Full Year course will send 5 term records at EOY: Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4 and FY. The FY is what we refer to as an additional SIF SCS ("fake") term. SIF Districts need to have Term Codes set up for all of the course term combinations used in their course catalog during the school year. These additional SIF SCS terms are used only for SCS reporting and are not used in Grading or Scheduling. These additional terms need to be included to each of your school’s Academic Year Settings screen. ** Reference the previous year Academic Year Setting screen and use the same Order for the Terms. This order and "included" Grade Headings and Terms are both referenced when priting PCL Report Cards. Changing the Order can affect report cards.
