Appendix A - School Completion Certificate Program
Reporting Locally Developed Courses
TRAX Reporting Requirements & Procedures
All students receiving the School Completion Certificate Program credential, will be issued transcripts showing all successfully completed credit and non-credit Grade 10 – 12 courses.
Many of these students will be taking non-credit Locally Developed (LD) courses, such as remedial or modified courses. To be included in student transcripts, schools will need to report the course codes of these completed courses to the ministry through the TRAX system.
For reporting to TRAX for the school year, schools and authorities may only use the LD courses (core and generic course codes) listed in core list and generic list or found below.
NOTE: All other LD course codes were closed as of August 31, 2008.
All these course codes can be used for reporting student progress from as far back as September 1, 2000. As of August 31, 2006, all LD courses available to students are non-credit courses. Courses that Boards/Authorities wished to continue to offer to students for credit were to have been converted to Board/Authority Authorized (BAA) courses.
1. Core Course Codes
Core course codes for non-credit courses can be found below. Codes have been designed to cover most of the courses that students in the School Completion Certificate Program (SCCP) will take.
To avoid an ever increasing list of course codes, any future expansion to the listing of available non-credit LD modified or remedial courses will be through generic codes that schools, school boards and authorities can access readily and customize using the “Course Description Field”.
2. Generic Course Codes
Generic course codes have been designed to cover the rare occasions when a student is taking a course, the subject matter of which cannot be covered by the core course codes.
NOTE: The course title submitted to TRAX in the free text “Course Description Field” will appear on the student’s transcript exactly as submitted. Please ensure that these titles are meaningful and spelled correctly.
