Utah eTranscript and Record Exchange - UTREx  - Data Clearinghouse

The UTREx/Data Clearinghouse gathers and stores student data throughout the year for exchanging student records and for reporting at the local, state and national levels.  In May, the Utah State Board of Education approved amendments to R277-48 including adjusting deadlines for the UTREx data submissions for October 1 and December 1.  Many of the student data elements collected through the UTREx data submissions are used in funding formulas for MSP (Minimum School Program).  The data collected on October 1 are used for the legislative budget estimates each year.

R277-484 now requires that a complete update of data as of October 1 through UTREx is done seven business days after October 1.  In addition, a revised update is allowed to be completed October 15 if significant errors are identified by USOE or the LEA.  These deadlines are meant to allow for a specific window of time to correct technical errors and check data quality before moving forward with a final data set for budgeting.

Please be aware that the policy does NOT allow extensions for UTREx updates beyond these timelines. This same policy is applied to the December 1 and year-end data submissions.
