High School Equivalency Program - PEIMS Reporting
To determine eligible days present for students participating in the HSEP, the district must record, in each reporting period, the actual number of daily contact minutes that the student on any given day attends the HSEP. A 500 series record will need to be created for each reporting period for the PEIMS Attendance submission.
In order to earn ADA for HSEP purposes, a student on any given day within a particular six weeks must attend at least 45 minutes of HSEP instruction and/or traditional classes toward graduation requirements.
The maximum number of instructional contact minutes allowed each school day, including any instructional time accounted for in traditional courses toward graduation requirements, is 600 minutes.
If an HSEP student on any given day attends less than 45 minutes of instructional contact, then no ADA for HSEP will be earned.
Do not create a 500 record for a student who was not in attendance at least 45 minutes of one day in the HSEP during the reporting period indicated.
A district must report all minutes of instruction attended by a student for each six week reporting period. However, no student may generate more than one (1.000) ADA for Foundation School Program funding purposes for a school year within a district and/or campus.
You still need to keep an attendance time log of HSEP students. You will need this if you are audited.
You will record time in minutes for each reporting period. A minimum of 45 minutes per day is required.
You will need to create a 500 record for each reporting period for each HSEP student for the PEIMS Attendance Collection.
