5 Grade Level - SENR 1.25 (Grade Level) = KN, 01 – 12
6 Student Gender - SINF 2.19 (Student Gender Code)
7 Ethnicity/Race - identified using SINF fields 2.24 (Student Hispanic Ethnicity Indicator), SINF 2.25 (Student Ethnicity Missing Indicator), SINF 2.26-2.30 (Student Race 1-5 Code), and SINF 2.31 (Student Race Missing Indicator) and the following rules:
1) If the Student Hispanic Ethnicity Indicator (Field 2.24) = Y, always roll up to Hispanic, even if one or more races are selected or the Student Race Missing Indicator (Field 2.31) = Y
2) If Student Hispanic Ethnicity Missing Indicator (Field 2.24) = N or null and the Student Ethnicity Missing Indicator (Field 2.25) = Y or null and Student Race 1 - 5 Codes (Fields 2.26 - 2.30) is indicated, then roll up per rules outlined in 5 below.
3) If the Student Hispanic Ethnicity Indicator (Field 2.24) = N and the Student Race Missing Indicator (Field 2.31) = Y, then roll up to "Missing".
4) If the Student Hispanic Ethnicity Indicator (Field 2.24) = N or null, and the Student Race Missing Indicator (Field 2.31) = Y, then roll up to "Missing."
5) If the Student Hispanic Ethnicity Indicator (Field 2.24) = N or null, and the Student Race Missing Indicator (Field 2.31) = N or null, and Student Race 1-5 Codes (Field 2.26 - 2.30) is indicated, then roll up as follows:

8 Total Unduplicated – count of 1.08(SSID) with an Open Enrollment at any time during the Report Period specified with specified 1.24(Enrollment Status Code = 10 or 30
Note - Total Unduplicated Cumulative Enrollment is unduplicated for each aggregate level. Therefore, the total for all selected schools will not necessary equal the aggregate of each school's cumulative enrollment
9 Total LEA Unduplicated – 1.24 (Enrollment status Code), 1.24(Enrollment Status Code), 1.23 (Enrollment start date), 1.26 (Enrollment exit date).
Count of 1.08(SSID) with an Open Enrollment at any time during the Report Period specified with specified 1.24(Enrollment Status Code) = 10 or 30
NOTE: The count of students is duplicated at each aggregate level at the LEA-level. If a student is enrolled in two schools within the LEA, they will be counted twice in the LEA-level counts. The school-level aggregates will have an “N/A” populated
10 # Student w/ Absence Data – 13.13 (Student Absence Summary Data Collection Exemption Indicator)
Calculation: Unduplicated count of 1.08(SSID) within each disaggregated category where STAS file submitted during report period and 13.13(Student Absence Summary data Collection Exemption Indicator) <> Y or null
Notes: The count of students is unduplicated at each aggregate level.
If no STAS records submitted, display as 0
11 # Student w/ Absence Data Exemptions – 13.13(Student Absence Summary data Collection Exemption Indicator)
Unduplicated count of SSIDs within each disaggregated category where STAS file submitted during report period and 13.13(Student Absence Summary data Collection Exemption Indicator) = Y
Notes: -This field will remain the same regardless of which absence type filter is selected.
-If no STAS records submitted, display as 0.
