Guidance Teacher-Student and Principal Linkage Information
 Click here for a memo from Kathleen Moorhead, our Executive Director for Data Systems and Educational Technology.  The document provides important information regarding reporting and verifying Teacher-Student Data Linkage (TSDL) information and principal linkages in the Student Information Repository System (SIRS) for the 2013-14 school year.  

 These data must be reported to the State and verified no later than June 6, 2014.  Regional data centers will establish an earlier deadline to allow sufficient time for processing.  

 Because of the complexity and importance of TSDL information, section 30-2.3 of the Rules of the Board of Regents requires that teachers be involved in data verification efforts through roster verification reports.  In order to make this process more manageable, it is highly recommended that data be reviewed and verified throughout the school year, rather than immediately prior to the verification deadline.
