The Master Schedule of Course Collection(MSC) to meet federal requirements of the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund requires school divisions to adopt the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) School Codes for the Exchange of Data (SCED). The new SCED codes have been incorporated into the SCED/Assignment to Endorsement Mapping to determine licensure requirements for a specific assignment. This is not a one-to-one mapping. The new SCED codes will replace the Virginia Assignment Code listing in the near future. School divisions will need to become familiar with the new SCED code system:





PRIVACY ACT NOTICE: The application for teacher licensure in Virginia requires that you provide your social security number. Section 22.1-296.4 of the Code of Virginia requires a check of the registry of founded complaints of child abuse and neglect in Virginia and other states. A social security number is required for this search. In addition, Virginia is a member of the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification, and uses their clearinghouse to check for licensure revocation, suspension, denial, and reinstatement in other states. Virginia also provides information to the clearinghouse regarding licensure revocation, suspension, denial, and reinstatement in Virginia. The social security number is used for the clearinghouse and was required prior to 1975. The Virginia Department of Education will not release your social security number except in reporting cases of licensure revocation, suspension, denial and reinstatement as noted above.
