Introduction

The System

1. The Student Information Management System (STIMS), a part of the Education Information System (EdIS), is a computerized system maintained by School Places Allocation (SPA) Section of the Education Bureau (EDB). All student identity data in the system are provided by schools participating in the system. The unique Student Reference Numbers (STRNs) of the students, whose personal data are uploaded by schools, assigned by EDB differentiate the identity of individual students. The accuracy of the data in the system very much depends on the timely data reporting to EDB by schools.

2. The schools participating in STIMS (STIMS schools) are primary, secondary and special schools operated in the daytime, and are mainly government, aided, caput and direct subsidy scheme (DSS) schools.

Purpose of the System

3. The system is maintained for collection of student data and ensuring the accuracy of such data to serve as a database for the following purposes:

‧ Central allocation of school places

‧ Enforcement of universal basic education

‧ Compilation of student related statistics

‧ Monitoring of education grants

‧ Education researches

‧ Other purposes related to education

Student Reference Number (STRN)

4. EDB assigns each student in STIMS schools an STRN. The purpose is to differentiate the identity of individual student so as to avoid mismatching of data of students with identical name, date of birth and sex when their data are processed.

This STRN is a unique identity code for individual students in the system. Schools should not alter nor assign the STRN of any student.

5. At present, the SPA (STIMS) Section in EDB is the only party with the sole authority to assign and change the STRN of a student in STIMS. Other sections in EDB and schools should not attempt to assign or alter the STRN of a student. Data reported by school with a different STRN from the one stored in STIMS will cause data error and affect the normal operation of the system.

6. At necessary and appropriate moments (e.g. after receiving report from school of the Hong Kong Identity Card No. newly acquired by a student who was not born in Hong Kong), EDB may change the STRN of a student. EDB will inform the schools the new STRNs of the students by sending them “List of Student Identity Data on EDB Record and New STRNs Generated” through Communication and Delivery System (CDS) or CDS (Non-WebSAMS Schools) once the system has generated new STRNs for the students concerned. At the same time when the said list is sent to schools using the Web-based School Administration Management System (WebSAMS), the new STRNs compiled in a data file will be transmitted to the respective schools’ WebSAMS through CDS and schools can update their WebSAMS records with the file automatically. For Non-WebSAMS schools,

(5)

they should update their school records with the new STRNs upon receipt of the said list. Both WebSAMS and Non-WebSAMS schools are requested to inform the students concerned of their new STRNs promptly. Please note that before receiving notice from EDB of the new STRNs for the students concerned, the school should continue to use the original STRNs.

7. If a student was not born in Hong Kong and has not yet obtained the Hong Kong Identity Card (HKIC), EDB will first assign an 8-digit STRN to him/her. After the student having got the HKIC, the school should report it to EDB by submitting Form D promptly so that EDB will update the student’s STRN to be the same as his/her HKIC No.

8. Schools are obliged to ensure that all their students are aware of their own STRNs, such that in case of their school transfer, they may inform the new schools of their STRNs. On the other hand, when a school admits a new student who has previously studied in other STIMS schools in Hong Kong, the school should obtain from the student his/her STRN and report the admission to EDB with that STRN. By this means, a student carries his/her STRN until he/she terminates schooling in Hong Kong.

9. To assist the students to bear in mind and keep record of their own STRNs, school may print students’ STRNs on their student handbooks. However, school should note that in order to ensure the protection of student’s Hong Kong Identity Card (HKIC) data from unnecessary or accidental access, school should not print the STRN directly on the student’s handbook if his/her STRN is the same as his/her HKIC No.

or Hong Kong Birth Certificate (HKBC) No. In this connection, school should handle the printing of student’s STRN on the student handbook according to the following criteria:

(i) If the student’s STRN is different from his/her HKIC/HKBC No. (i.e. the student’s STRN is an 8-digit numeric no.), school may print the STRN on the student’s handbook directly. For example, if a student’s STRN is 98765432, school may print his/her STRN directly on his/her student handbook as 98765432.

(ii) If the student’s STRN is assigned according to his/her HKIC/HKBC No.

(i.e. the student’s STRN is composed of alphabet(s) and numeric numbers), school should not print the student’s STRN directly on the student handbook.

Instead, school may print the characters “HKIC/BC No.” or in terms of Chinese characters “香港身 份證 /出生證 明書號碼” on the student handbook under the column of STRN. As such, in case the student concerned needs to transfer to another school, the new school may obtain the STRN of the student by referring to his/her HKIC/BC No. so as to facilitate the reporting of student admission to the Education Bureau.

Updating of Student Data and Collection of New Student Data

10. The Annual Enrolment Survey

This survey conducted by EDB is an overall “stock-taking” and data updating exercise of STIMS, aiming also at collecting data of new students in schools.

Schools are required to conduct a comprehensive checking of all their student data on a specified survey day and report to EDB any data which need updating or rectification with respective forms in the WebSAMS or eForms. For example, schools should use Form E in the WebSAMS or eForm E to report the enrolment information of students with STRN (including own students and transferred students) and use the Form C in the WebSAMS or eForm C to report admission of new students without STRN.

(6)

11. “Full List of Student Identity Data on EDB Record and Current STRNs”

(abbreviated as Full List of Students Enrolled in School) and “List of Student Identity Data on EDB Record and New STRNs Generated”

After processing of data for the enrolment survey has been completed, the system will generate a report of student data (the “Full List of Students Enrolled in School”) for each school. EDB will send this list to respective schools such that schools will crosscheck again the data on the list against data on school record. On the other hand, at necessary and appropriate moments, EDB may change the STRN of students and send “List of Student Identity Data on EDB Record and New STRNs Generated” to schools for them to update the STRNs for the students concerned. In case any discrepancy is detected, the school should send relevant Report Form to EDB for amendment. Schools may also use these lists for easy checking of student data, record keeping and informing students of their latest STRNs.

12. Specific Report Forms for on-going Data Amendment/Updating

EDB has designed specific report forms for schools to inform EDB of the necessary amendment/updating of student data on various occasions, which include:

- leaving/ absent from school continuously for 7 days or more (Form A/As);

- admission of new student with STRN (Form B);

- admission of new students without STRN (Form C);

- change of student name, identity document and class attending, etc. (Form D);

and

- enrolment survey reporting at the beginning of the school year (Form E).

Student Data and Personal Data Privacy

13. Student data are personal private data, when handling such data (including the purposes and way of data collection, use of data, data security and access to data, etc.), schools should observe the provisions in the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance i.e. Chapter 486 of the Laws of Hong Kong. For any query related to this ordinance, schools may contact the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (telephone number: 2827 2827, fax number: 2877 7026 and e- mail address: enquiry@pcpd.org.hk) or visit the website (www.pcpd.org.hk).

Regarding the Personal Information Collection Statement when handling student data, please refer to Appendix 1.

Liaison between Schools and the SPA (STIMS) Section, EDB

14. The SPA (STIMS) Section of EDB has assigned Liaison Officer(s) for each district to be responsible for liaison with schools in his/her district on matters related to the Student Information Management System (STIMS). Should STIMS schools need assistance on the aforesaid matters, they may contact the Liaison Officer responsible for their school.

(9)

Enrolment Survey Data

- Use Form E for students with STRN and Form C for students without STRN (List of Data to be reported in Form E and Form C is at Appendix 2)

WebSAMS Schools

WebSAMS schools prepare their enrolment survey data including Form E (for own school students and transferred students, i.e. students with STRN) and Form C (for students without STRN) for students on roll on the Survey Day in WebSAMS and then transmit them to EDB through CDS.

Non-WebSAMS Schools

 Non-WebSAMS Schools use eForm E for the submission of enrolment survey data to the EDB. This eForm E is a web-based electronic Enrolment Survey Form and contains a list of student data. On the list, there are data on the following types of students -

‧ Secondary schools: they are students completed S1, S2, S4 and S5 in the last school year while no reports of leaving (Form A) of such students are received by EDB from the school. In addition, the list also includes data on S4 and S1 students placed to the school through EDB’s Secondary Four Placement (SFP) Mechanism and Secondary School Places Allocation (SSPA) System respectively.

‧ Primary schools: they are students completed P1 to P5 in the last school year while no reports of leaving (Form A) of such students are received by EDB from the school. In addition, the list also includes data on P1 students allocated to the school through the Primary One Places Allocation (POA) System by EDB.

 For other students with STRN and not found in the eForm E, schools should add their enrolment records to the relevant classes in the eForm E. Such students may include the following categories –

For all schools

‧ Those students being re-admitted this school year after they had previously been reported left.

‧ Students transferred from other STIMS schools in Hong Kong.

For secondary schools

‧ S3 and S6 repeaters

‧ S1 students transferred from other SSPA allocated schools For primary schools

‧ P1 students transferred from other POA allocated schools

 The eForm E is provided by EDB to Non-WebSAMS schools. Schools can access the eForm for STIMS through the Common Log-On System (CLO). After checking the data and having completed the eForm E, Non-WebSAMS schools should return this eForm E to EDB electronically.

(10)

Points to Note for WebSAMS and Non-WebSAMS Schools

1. Apart from own school students, the enrolment survey data submitted through Form E in the WebSAMS or eForm E should also contain students who are on roll on the Survey Day and have previously studied in other STIMS schools (i.e. transferred students). Such student should possess an STRN. In case school cannot obtain the student's STRN, please contact the Liaison Officer.

2. Please use a Form C in the WebSAMS/eForm C to report the enrolment of a student who has never studied in any STIMS schools nor allocated to a school through POA/SSPA, i.e.

student without an STRN.

3. Schools may update the Home District Council (DC) of students through the submission of the student enrolment data. Please note that the Home DC of the student is the district in which the student usually resides during the school days. For the students who live in the Mainland and travel daily to schools in Hong Kong, their Home DC should be reported as “Inapplicable” (or Home DC code reported as “X”).

4. Schools cannot amend the name, sex or date of birth of students through the submission of the student enrolment data. If necessary, please use a Form D/Ds in the WebSAMS or eForm D for amendment of name, sex or date of birth data of a student promptly after submitting the Enrolment Survey.

5. Please ensure that the data input for the “Name”, “Sex” and “Date of Birth” items tally with those listed on the original copy of the student's identity document. [Note: Schools have to check against the student’s HK Identity Card (or HK Birth Certificate if the student has not yet had the HK Identity Card). Only when the student does not possess these two documents, school may refer to his/her other documents.]

6. Under no circumstances should a school amend the STRN of its student (please refer to the paragraphs on STRN in the Introduction Section at the beginning of this guide).

WebSAMS schools should never assign nor amend STRNs directly in their WebSAMS system without being informed by EDB. EDB system cannot capture any STRN not generated by the EDB system. Unmatched STRN will lead to failure of school allocation and implementation of Education Ordinance.

7. As different schools may adopt different measures to cater for the learning needs of students (e.g. split class or group teaching), the number of classes actually operated by some schools may be different from the number of classes approved by the Bureau. In reporting the class names in which students are enrolled, schools should refer to the classes and class names actually operated. Besides, schools should use the same set of names of the operating classes that are used in the Survey on Class and Subject Details conducted in September each year.

8. For all new students who arrive from the mainland China and hold the One-way Permit, the school should report their Date of Entry from Mainland (for new students without STRN, report the data by using Form C in WebSAMS or eForm C during the Enrolment Survey; for new students with STRN, such as P1 students allocated to the school, report promptly the data by using Form D/Ds in WebSAMS or eForm D after submitting the Enrolment Survey).

9. When using Form C to report a student who is admitted to a school in Hong Kong for the first time (i.e. student not yet allocated with STRN), the school should report the HK Birth Certificate No. or Hong Kong Identity Card No. of the student concerned if he/she was born in Hong Kong. If he/she was born in the Mainland, the school should also report his/her Date of Entry from Mainland.

10. Before submitting the Enrolment Survey (i.e. during 1 September to mid-September), if students’ non-attendance persist, schools should report students’ non-attendance cases on the 7th day of the students’ absence to the Non-attendance Cases Team first through the Hotline “Early Notification System - for reporting suspected non-attendance cases” at 3698 4411. After submitting the Enrolment Survey, schools should then submit promptly the Form A/As in the WebSAMS or eForm A for the students’ non-attendance.

(11)

“Full List of Student Identity Data on EDB Record and Current STRN”

(abbreviated as Full List of Students Enrolled in School)

and

“List of Student Identity Data on EDB Record and New STRNs Generated”

1. These lists are issued by EDB to all STIMS schools as a school record and a checking list with a view to ensuring that the student identity data recorded in schools tally with those on EDB records.

2. They display data of a student’s name, class, STRN, sex, date of birth, the codes of student’s home DC, ethnicity and spoken language at home.

3. The Full List of Students Enrolled in School

In December each year, EDB will issue this full list – “Full List of Student Identity Data on EDB Record and Current STRN” to all STIMS schools upon completion of the enrolment survey. The list displays the identity data of all enrolled students captured by the EDB system as at the date the list is generated.

4. The Data Updating List

After enrolment survey till end of the school year, EDB will issue the “List of Student Identity Data on EDB Record and New STRNs Generated” to the school in case the STRN of student(s) need to be updated (a data file containing the new STRN(s) will also be sent to WebSAMS schools through CDS for easy capturing).

Schools should check to ensure that the information on the list is accurate and update the STRN of the student concerned accordingly. Schools should also inform the students concerned of their new STRNs promptly.

5. Newly Assigned STRN List

EDB system will assign an STRN for the student newly admitted to a school in Hong Kong and without schooling history in the STIMS. Subsequently, an EDB record list with the new STRN “List of Student Identity Data on EDB Record and New STRNs Generated” will be issued to the school (again, a data file containing the new STRN(s) will also be sent to WebSAMS schools through CDS for easy capturing).

Upon receipt of the list, schools should inform the students concerned of their new STRNs promptly.

6. Schools have to use data on these lists to verify the student identity data against their school records, to ensure that the data on both school and EDB records tally with each other. After checking, in case a school detects any discrepancy on the list, school should report to EDB for amendment of such data. In this connection, schools should always ensure that student data in their records are valid by checking against their students’ identity documents in case of doubt.

7. Schools should keep all such lists issued to them as a proper school record for future reference for the whole school year until they receive the Major Full List for the next school year.

(12)

Form A/As/B&As: Report Students Leaving/Absence from Schools

(List of Data to be reported in this Form is at Appendix 1)

The Function

This Form A/As in the WebSAMS or eForm A is used for reporting students who have left school/been absent from school continuously for 7 days or more. Schools must report this Form on the 7th day of the student’s continuous non-attendance WITHOUT DELAY disregard of the reasons for absence. For details, please refer to the EDB Circular No. 1/2009 on “Upholding Students’ Right to Education”.

Points to Note for WebSAMS and Non-WebSAMS Schools

1. If Form A/As in the WebSAMS or eForm A of a student has been reported for non- attendance/leaving, schools should use a Form B in the WebSAMS or eForm B to report the case when the student resumes schooling or is re-admitted. Otherwise, the schooling information of this student will not be updated in the system of the Education Bureau.

2. Normally, for a student who left school, the “last day of attendance” to be entered should be the last day that the non-attendance student attended the school.

3. In reporting Form A/As in the WebSAMS or eForm A, the information of the Parent/Guardian and Student Home Address must be entered.

4. For any student who has been reported non-attendance before by Form A in the WebSAMS or eForm A, the school should report his/her leaving by using Form A in the WebSAMS or eForm A again if the student has left the school subsequently.

5. For any student who has been reported non-attendance with a reason “Pending confirmation of reason behind the student's absence” before by Form A in the WebSAMS or eForm A, the school should report his/her absence with the confirmed reason by using Form A in the WebSAMS or eForm A again in due course after the reason of non-attendance has been confirmed.

6. For a student whose period of non-attendance, which was reported by Form A in the last school year, spans across the last and current school years, the school has no need to report the non-attendance of the student again for the current school year by using Form A in the WebSAMS or eForm A after reporting the student’s enrolment information, e.g.

enrolled class, etc. in the Enrolment Survey. If the students resume schooling, the school should report resumption of schooling by Form B in the WebSAMS or eForm B.

If the student is confirmed to leave, school should report departure by Form A in the WebSAMS or eForm A with last day of attendance in the previous school year.

7. Before submitting the Enrolment Survey (i.e. during 1 September to mid-September), if students’ non-attendance persist, schools should report students’ non-attendance cases on the 7th day of the students’ absence to the Non-attendance Cases Team first through the Hotline “Early Notification System - for reporting suspected non-attendance cases”

at 3698 4411. After submitting the Enrolment Survey, schools should then submit promptly the Form A/As in the WebSAMS or eForm A for the students’ non-attendance.

Point to Note for WebSAMS schools only

8. If a student leaves before submission of Enrolment Survey (between 1 September and mid-September) and has not been included in the Enrolment Survey, please submit Form As (for students who studied at the school in the past school year) or submit Forms B&As (for students who are newly admitted in the current school year, have STRN and have attended school).

(13)

Form B: Report Newly Admitted Student with STRN

(List of Data to be reported in this Form is at Appendix 1)

The Function

 This Form B in the WebSAMS or eForm B is suitable for use in reporting data on:

‧ A student newly admitted after the Enrolment Survey Day who has previously studied in other STIMS schools in Hong Kong, even if the student cannot readily provide his STRN (please refer to Points to Note below).

‧ A student that has been re-admitted to/resumed schooling in your school, while at an earlier time, your school has submitted a Form A/As in the WebSAMS or eForm A to this Section to report his/her leaving school/non-attendance from class.

Schools should submit Form B in the WebSAMS or eForm B for the students within 10 days after the first day of their attendance.

 This form is for exclusive use by the SPA (STIMS) Section of EDB. This is not a form for application of grants. Please do not submit this form to the Newly Arrived Children Support Unit of EDB. Before making application for grant from the Newly Arrived Children Support Unit, schools must submit the student’s Form B to SPA (STIMS) Section of EDB. Otherwise, the Newly Arrived Children Support Unit of EDB cannot process the application.

Points to Note for WebSAMS and Non-WebSAMS Schools

1. When admitting students, schools should check their Student Reference Numbers (STRN) from the students’ Primary One/Secondary One Admission Slips or handbooks of the schools they last attended.

2. For a transferred student who claims to have forgotten his/her STRN and fails to show the said documents, the new school should advise the student to obtain his/her STRN from his/her last school. In case the school cannot obtain the STRN of such a student, please contact the Liaison Officer. Please report the admission of student with STRN via Form B in the WebSAMS or eForm B, but not Form C in the WebSAMS or eForm C.

3. In case schools have doubt whether a student has ever been assigned an STRN by the EDB system, please contact the Liaison Officer for clarification. DO NOT report a Form C in the WebSAMS or eForm C simply for the reason that the STRN of such students are not readily available.

4. “1st Day of Attendance in current class” should be the first day when the student attends the school, but not the day when the school registered his/her admission.

Schools should not submit Form B in the WebSAMS or eForm B before the day he/she actually attends school. The class start date is by default on 1 September each year. The first day of attendance should not be marked earlier than that date.

The year-end date is by default on 15 July each year. The first day of attendance should not be marked beyond that date.

5. Please ensure that the data input for the “Name”, “Sex” and “Date of Birth” items tally with those listed on the original copy of the student's identity document. [Note:

Schools need to check against the student's HK Identity Card (or HK Birth Certificate if the student has not yet had the HK Identity Card). Only when the student does not possess these two documents, school may refer to his other identity documents.]

(14)

6. For new students with STRN admitted at the beginning of the school year (i.e. on or before the Enrolment Survey Day), schools should report their admission through the Enrolment Survey (Form E in the WebSAMS or eForm E) instead of Form B in the WebSAMS or eForm B.

7. The Home District Council of the student is the district in which the student usually resides during the school days. For the students who live in the Mainland and travel daily to schools in Hong Kong, their Home DC should be reported as

“Inapplicable” (or Home DC code reported as “X”).

(15)

Form C: Report Newly Admitted Student without STRN

(List of Data to be reported in this Form is at Appendix 1)

The Function

 This Form C in the WebSAMS or eForm C is only suitable for reporting the admission of new students who have never studied in any STIMS primary/secondary school in Hong Kong. These students should have no Student Reference Numbers (STRN). Schools should submit this form within 10 days after the student’s first day of attendance.

 This form is for exclusive use by the SPA (STIMS) Section of EDB. This is not a form for application of grants. Please do not submit this form to the Newly Arrived Children Support Unit of EDB. Before making application for grant from the Newly Arrived Children Support Unit, schools must first submit the student’s Form C in the WebSAMS or eForm C to SPA (STIMS) Section of EDB. Otherwise, the Newly Arrived Children Support Unit of EDB cannot process the application in time.

Points to Note for WebSAMS and Non-WebSAMS Schools

1. All items on the student must be entered except the following:

(a) When the student does not have a Chinese name, the corresponding boxes may be left blank;

(b) When the student has more than one kind of identity documents, the school needs to fill in only the number of one identity document in the following priority order:

i. HKID Card;

ii. HK Birth Certificate;

iii. Other Identity Document (Note: HKID Card number and HK Birth Certificate number should not be entered into this item).

(c) For the item “School Group”, schools may leave it blank for reporting the student admission except for the following students:

‧ For reporting new admission of students participating in Secondary One Places Allocation system, i.e. all newly admitted P6 students and P5 students admitted after May.

2. For students who do not possess a Hong Kong Birth Certificate, arrive from the Mainland and are admitted to the STIMS school for the first time, schools have to report their “Date of Entry from Mainland”.

3. “1st Day of Attendance in current class” should be the first day when the student attends the school, but not the day when the school registered his/her admission.

Schools should not submit Form C in the WebSAMS or eForm C before this day. As the class start date is by default on 1 September each year, the first day of attendance should not be marked earlier than that date. As the year-end date is by default on 15 July each year, the first day of attendance should not be marked beyond that date.

4. Never use Form C in the WebSAMS or eForm C to amend the student particulars.

Schools need to report via Form D in the WebSAMS or eForm D.

5. Never use a Form C in the WebSAMS or eForm C to report new admission of a student with an STRN. Otherwise, it may create multiple records and STRNs for the same student, which will affect the accuracy of the information in the system and the normal operation of the system. Schools should submit Form B in the WebSAMS or

eForm B to report new admission of a student previously studied in a STIMS school.

6. Please ensure that the data input for the “Name”, “Sex” and “Date of Birth” items tally with those listed on the original copy of the student's identity document. [Note: Schools need to check against the student's HK Identity Card (or HK Birth Certificate if the student has not yet had the HK Identity Card). Only when the student does not possess these two documents, school may refer to his/her other documents.]

7. The Home District Council of the student is the district in which the student usually resides during the school days. For the students who live in the Mainland and travel daily to schools in Hong Kong, their Home DC should be reported as “Inapplicable”

(or Home DC code reported as “X”).

8. For all students who arrive from the mainland China and hold the One-way Permit, the school should report their “Date of Entry from Mainland”.

9. When using Form C to report a student who is admitted to a school in Hong Kong for the first time (i.e. student not yet allocated with STRN), the school should report the HK Birth Certificate No. or Hong Kong Identity Card No. of the student concerned if he/she was born in Hong Kong. If he/she was born in the Mainland, the school should also report his/her Date of Entry from Mainland.

Form D/Ds: Report Amendment of Students’ data

(List of Data to be reported in this Form is at Appendix 1)

The Function

This Form D/Ds in the WebSAMS or eForm D is used for reporting amendment of student particulars. They include:

‧ Class Level (in English)

‧ Class Name (in English)/Class Code

‧ Name in English & Chinese

‧ Sex

‧ Date of Birth

‧ HK Identity Card Number

‧ HK Birth Certificate Number

‧ Other Identity Document

‧ Home District Council

‧ 1st Day of Attendance in Current Class

‧ New Arrival Children from Mainland (Date of Entry from Mainland)

‧ Date of Transfer of Class

‧ Ethnicity

‧ Spoken Language at Home

Points to Note for WebSAMS and Non-WebSAMS Schools

1. Please only input data for the item(s) to be amended/reported except the STRN which serves as the key for the student record. (For eForm D, the name of student should also be entered for verification purpose.)

2. "Other Identification Document" should not be a HK Identity Card nor Hong Kong Birth Certificate.

3. Please ensure that the data input for the “Name”, “Sex” and “Date of Birth” items tally with those listed on the original copy of the student's identity document. [Note:

Schools need to check against the student's HK Identity Card (or HK Birth Certificate if the student has not yet had the HK Identity Card). Only when the student does not possess these two documents, school may refer to his other documents.]

4. Under no circumstances should a school assign or amend the STRN of its student (please refer to the paragraphs on STRN in the Introduction Section at the beginning of this guide). WebSAMS schools or non-WebSAMS schools should never assign or amend STRNs directly in their WebSAMS system or in the eForm without being informed by EDB. EDB system cannot capture any STRN not generated by the EDB system. Unmatched STRN will lead to failure of school allocation for the student concerned and implementation of Education Ordinance.

5. The Home District Council of the student is the district in which the student usually resides during the school days. For the students who live in the Mainland and travel daily to schools in Hong Kong, their Home DC should be reported as

“Inapplicable” (or Home DC code reported as “X”).

6. For all students who arrive from the mainland China and hold the One-way Permit, the school should report their Date of Entry from Mainland (for new students without STRN, report the data by using Form C in WebSAMS or eForm C during the Enrolment Survey; for new students with STRN, such as P1 students allocated to the school, report promptly the data by using Form D/Ds in WebSAMS or eForm D after submitting the Enrolment Survey).

Points to Note for WebSAMS Schools

7. When a WebSAMS school is asked to send Form D to report amendment of students’ data and no amendment of the data already captured in the WebSAMS is required, please use Form Ds to report these data to STIMS.
