||Student Transcript System (STS)
||The student transcript system (STS) currently collects detailed transcript data on Louisiana students in both public and nonpublic high schools. Data are sent throughout the year in both online and batch form. Two different groups extract data from STS: Board of Regents and LOSFA. Regents request their Ranking File at three “harvests”: February 15th, June 15th and September 15th. That file has one record per student and contains student demographic data, their overall GPA, progress toward post-secondary acceptance criterion, and two calculated ranks: rank in graduating class and rank in whole class. LOSFA runs their extracts throughout the year, but are more active in a May-September timeframe. The extract gives details on a student progress toward a TOPS award, and is one record per student per award per award category. Both BOR and LOSFA also receive the transcript detail extract.
