The file Service-Trans, described in the attached file layout, must be used for all data transfer with SED concerning approval of all handicapped child services beginning with the 1996-97 school year.
No particular service will require the use of all the data fields. Below you will find a list of the data
fields necessary for SED to process 4410 service approvals.

  1. SRV-TR-STAC-ID – Optional if you are sending a STAC-1. Required if you are sending a STAC-3 amendment, a withdraw or a reapplication. This is the six digit unique identification number for all children on the STAC system. If you are sending a STAC-1 and you know the value of this field for this child, please include it on your transaction. This will save SED from having to match the child by name and DOB.
