Coursework Completion System
School districts submit to DPI two staffing and coursework reports each year. The first, due in October, is the 1202 Staffing Report. This report collects who is working in each district, what role they fulfill and to what extent. For example, it will show that "Bill" is a health science education teacher at 100%.
The second report, in the past, was the 1215 report which provided information on the types of courses offered and how many students were in each course. This report may have stated that a "Basic Health Science Course" was offered to 25 students (13 freshmen--6 female, 7 male; 12 sophomores--7 female, 5 male). This report is being replaced in early 2011 with the "Coursework Completion System." This system will collect more information and also provide more specific information on courses offered. Each course now must correspond to a specific IES coursecode. The system also will now include each individual student, as well as the grade they receive.
Please take the time to be proactive with the courses in your department, at all levels. Below is the IES course codes for Health Science.

|E - Enriched or advanced||A course that augments the content and/or rigor of a general course, but does not carry an honors designation.|
|H - Honors||An advanced level course designed for students who have earned honors status according to educational requirements. These courses typically include additional content not found in general courses, and are formally designated as honors courses.|
