Dear Select Private School Directors:
This letter contains information regarding the online submission of the Student National Origin Report (SNOR) for fiscal year (FY) 2012–13.
The California Department of Education (CDE) uses the SNOR to collect the annual count of eligible immigrant students as required by Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Based on the total number of eligible immigrant students enrolled in public and private schools in California, the CDE receives a formula grant from the United States Department of Education and is authorized to allocate formula sub-grants to local educational agencies (LEAs) that experience a significant growth in their eligible immigrant student populations. Private schools, within the geographic jurisdiction of a participating LEA, are eligible to receive products and services for their immigrant students from the LEA.
The ESEA, sections 3301(1) and (6) defines immigrant children and youth as individuals who:
Section 3301(14) of the ESEA defines State as each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
For FY 2012–13, private schools should report the eligible immigrant count taken on either October 3, 2012, or March 1, 2013. Note: If a count was taken on both October 3, 2012, and March 1, 2013, the highest number of immigrant students should be submitted to the CDE.
To submit FY 2012–13 SNOR data, access the CDE’s SNOR Online Reporting Web page, which can be found at http://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/el/t3/snoronline08.asp, during the data-reporting window of March 1 through March 29, 2013. A system password, provided below, and personal identification number (PIN) are required to access the online report. For security purposes, the PIN will arrive in a separate document at or about the same time as this letter.
To be mailed in a separate letter dated, March 1, 2013
If you have any questions regarding the FY 2012–13 SNOR submission, please contact Sandra Covarrubias, Education Programs Consultant, Language Policy and Leadership Office, by phone at 916-319-0267 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
