Selecting Building of Enrollment (Location) Codes

  • Selecting Building of Enrollment Code for preschool students with disabilities (in order):
    • If student is participating in a pre-k or UPK program, location code is BEDS code of district building or BOCES in which pre-K or UPK program is provided. If not a district or BOCES building, use district code ending with “0666”
    • If not in pre-K or UPK program, use BEDS code of “coordinating service provider” or sole preschool special education service provider. (Use BEDS code of an APPROVED preschool special education provider.)
    • If no approved preschool special education service provider is involved, and the county is providing special education service by contracting with an independent service provider (not an approved provider), use BEDS code of the county.
  • Selecting Building of Enrollment Code for school age students with disabilities:
    • For students with disabilities in BOCES programs, use the generic 12 digit BOCES code that ends with “9000000000”.
    • For parentally placed students with disabilities in nonpublic schools that do not have a BEDS code, district applies to datqaquest@mail.nysed.gov for a code.
    • For school age students who are instructed full-time in community based organizations that do not have a BEDS code, district applies to cmessick@mail.nysed.gov for a code.
  • Building of enrollment codes for all approved preschool and school age special education programs for students with disabilities are posted at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/irs/SIRS/documentation/location-codes.shtml and at http://www.emsc.nysed.gov/sedcar/locationcodes.html.
