Data Collection and Reporting
2003-04 and Beyond
District of Residence is based on where the student typically sleeps at night. This may be at home, in an institution, or in any other facility. An exception exists for students with disabilities who, for EDUCATIONAL purposes, are placed by a school district in a residential facility located outside the school district (e.g., WSD and WSVH). Although these students may sleep at the residential facility, the "District of Residence/Public Agency of Responsibility" is the school district that placed the child in the facility.
CHANGES: District of Residence is required for all ISES records beginning with the fall 2006 ISES collection. This includes 2005-06 ISES Year End records and 2006-07 ISES Count Date records. If District of Residence is not the district submitting ISES data for that student then the submitting District will need to submit the code for the District of Residence. Otherwise the District of Residence will default to the submitting District. For any nondistrict charter school, the code in this field will be the code for the nondistrict charter school.
USES: Beginning in 2003-04, The "District of Residence" is used along with "
In these cases, the District of Residence is accountable for the student. All students are expected to receive services under the supervision of a school within the accountable district whether or not these services are directly provided by employees of that school. Usually the "School in District of Residence" is the school that would serve the student if the student physically attended classes in a school building in the District of Residence. Sometimes a separate school is assigned responsibility for supervising educational services provided in this manner. Certain larger districts have created schools specifically for the purpose of supervising the education of students not physically attending in district schoolbuildings. See also the definition of a school provided at Nondistrict Charter Schools. For nondistrict charter schools (under s. 118.40(2r), Wis. Stats.), beginning with 2005-06 Year End and 2006-07 Count Date records, the code for this field will be the code for the nondistrict charter school (not blank or null as in the past). By law these students would normally reside in the school district where the charter school is located. Accountability for students enrolled in nondistrict charter schools is always tied to the "2r" charter school regardless of "District of Residence" and these schools are not covered by ISES Preliminary Membership Reports or PI-1563.
