What is SEED?
The State Exchange of Education Data (SEED), formerly Southeastern Education Data Exchange, project will enable participating states to track, monitor, and share information for K-12 transfer students who cross state lines.
This project will accomplish two goals for participating states:
- Provide basic student information for a newly registered student transferring from a participating state.
- Identify students who transfer between the participating states but may be reflected as drop-outs by their "home" state. Participating states can more accurately reflect drop-out and graduation rates.
Why is this project important for NC?
When these goals are met, participating states will realize three primary benefits:
- Improve continuity of services for regional K-12 transfer students,
- Enhanced accuracy of K-12 graduation and drop-out rate calculations,
- Contribute to other efforts aimed at ensuring all K-12 students graduate from high school ready for a career and/or a postsecondary course of study.
The Georgia DOE is developing, will operate, and maintain a centralized point of exchange for routing requests and responses for information related to K-12 transfer of students across state lines for participating states in SEED.
Charter states currently participating in this project include Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Georgia*, Kentucky*, North Carolina*, Oklahoma, and South Carolina.
