The following course codes and descriptions provide uniform recording and course descriptions for completing the Licensed Personnel Forms (MIS03).  Consistency in reporting courses statewide is critical in reviewing school data and managing information. Administrators/teachers should use the most appropriate course codes that correspond to the courses taught in their schools.  Although there may not be a perfect correlation between the course descriptions and the course being taught, the course code that best describes that course should be used.  For courses which do not adequately correlate with course descriptions, the school must submit a New Course Code Request Application (SFN 60065). Once approved, a new course may be added to the course code list.
