During the process of setting up your school or organization, you will have noticed that an NCES ID is asked for on the Manage Schools section (Settings/ Manage or Add Schools).
What is a NCES ID?
- NCES has developed an on-line tool called the Public School Locator to enable school officials and others to obtain the correct name, address, phone number, NCES ID number, and other characteristics of a public school or school district when only limited information is known by the requestor.
- The Locator currently carries information as reported to NCES by state education agency officials in each state as of school year 2013–14. To retrieve information on public school districts, please visit the Public School District Locator .
- NCES school ID codes have a variety of uses, including information for the Rural Educational Achievement Program (REAP), Safe Schools/Healthy Students, National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS), and E-Rate applications.
