Title:  Prior-to-Secondary School Course Classification System: School Codes for the Exchange of Data (SCED)
Description: The Prior-to-Secondary School Course Classification System: School Codes for the Exchange of Data (SCED) developed a taxonomy for assigning standard codes to elementary and middle school courses. This taxonomy is intended to make it easier for school districts and states to maintain longitudinal student records electronically, and to transmit course taking information from one student information system to another, from one school district to another, and from a school district to a state department of education.
