Location Code Information

The Level 2 Repository only accepts records with valid BEDS codes. On records for students served in BOCES programs, the BEDS code on the School of Location record must be the general BOCES code, four digits followed by eight zeros. A list of valid BEDS codes for public schools, charter schools, BOCES, nonpublic schools, and approved private placements is available below. Make sure that the BEDS code you have entered for each student is on this list. If you have a question, about a BEDS code, please contact Information and Reporting Services at (518) 474-7965 or
