OSSE LEA Data Collections Template

Wednesday, April 17, 2024

Each year, the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) releases the LEA Data Collection Template, which is the process to facilitate the daily collection of student demographic, enrollment, contacts, and attendance data. The goal is to collect student data that LEAs maintain in their student information system (SIS) and to facilitate the transfer of these data elements from LEAs to OSSE.

OSSE requires LEAs to send collections on a daily basis, as this data is used to support the Statewide Longitudinal Education Data (SLED), the Special Education Data System (SEDS), and the daily validation of student attendance as well as transportation for students with disabilities. For public charter LEAs, data is transferred from OSSE to the District of Columbia Public Charter School Board (PCSB). Daily transfers ensure that both OSSE and PCSB have the LEA’s most current student information. The collection process will begin each day at 5 p.m.

For new LEAs or LEAs changing their student information system (SIS), please schedule an introductory meeting with Stephanie Davis at [email protected] to learn more about the Application Programming Interface (API) process no later than Friday, May 24, 2024. This meeting will ensure that your LEA is on track to send student information to OSSE prior to your first day of school.

For continuing LEAs, please inform OSSE if changes were made to your LEA SIS or you would like to review your LEA data mappings.
