EMIS Building IRN Codes

Use the EMIS Building IRN Codes page to add and update building Information Retrieval Number (IRN) codes to organize their locations based on functions.

A building's IRN is used to file records and information accordingly within Ohio. The state can keep records organized and up-to-date using these unique, six-digit identifiers.
In most cases, the building's IRN element is to be reported with the IRN of the individual building submitting a record. However, in some cases (i.e., community schools), the Building IRN Element and District IRN Element will be reported with the same IRN.
If student data records are assigned to the district rather than a building, the district reports Grade Schedule (DL) Records for each grade level of those students; the Building IRN Element (DL050) is the district's IRN. If any Organization-General Information applies at the district level rather than the building level, the district reports such records with the district IRN as the Organization IRN Element (DN050).
