WISEdata app icon

The enrollment type describes how a student is enrolled at a school, whether as a primary or non-primary enrollment. Students receiving services at a school are either receiving primary educational services, are parent-placed private students, are enrolled in coursework at a non-primary school, or are receiving services under a program gathered by WISEdata.

Code Description
Primary Enrollment at the school that most directly supervises the PK-12 educational services.
ParentPlacedPrivate Non-primary enrollment in a public school providing special education services. If the private school providing primary education services is a Choice school, that school submits the student's enrollment as Primary.
Coursework Non-primary enrollment for students taking courses at a school that is not their primary school.
Program Non-primary enrollment for students receiving services under a program gathered by WISEdata at a school not responsible for the student's primary PK-12 educational services. Note that this value is not currently used.

English Learner (EL) students in non-profit private schools (non-public schools), including private schools participating in one of the state’s Parental Choice Programs, may be eligible to access Title III programs, services, and products through the Local Education Agency (LEA) where the non-public school is located.

Choice schools do not report language instruction but do, however, report English Language Proficiency (ELP) codes of students who have been assessed and given an ACCESS score.

Choice schools that do not administer the ACCESS for ELLs may track the ELP code to best understand the needs of the student.

If a Choice school receives WISEdata Portal error 6777, they must make the decision whether to correct the ELP Code or set it to blank. If the Choice school decides to leave the ELP code blank, they may acknowledge warning 7108.

Refer to the English Learners in Private Schools document for more information.

Public schools servicing EL students in non-profit private schools (non-public schools), including private schools participating in one of the state’s Parental Choice Programs, receiving language instruction services through the Local Education Agency (LEA) where the non-public school is located.

Private and Choice students should be reported as a primary enrollment of the private school if the student is only receiving language instruction services through the public school. For more information, refer to the Students Taking Up to Two Classes page.
