3 Changes to the Student Information System

4 Exceptional Student, 60-Day Exception Year: Format: Exceptional Student Element: Exceptional Student, 60-Day Exception

5 Exceptional Student, 60-Day Exception NThe parent and local education agency did not agree to an There was no extension beyond the 60-day timeline for completion of the initial evaluation.

ZNot an initial evaluation to determine initial eligibility for programs for students with disabilities. Deleted for Changes to Codes and Definitions Year: Format: Exceptional Student Element: Exceptional Student, 60-Day Exception

6 Valid, Reliable, and Timely Data

7 Implications Data validity, reliability, and timeliness have serious implications for schools and districts.  School and District Accountability  School Grades  LEA Determinations  Public Reporting  Federal Reporting –  LEA Profiles –

8 Example #1 Year: Format: Federal/State Indicator Status Element: Fund Source Coordinated early intervening services (CEIS): Districts must use code I for students receiving CEIS if districts are required to provide CEIS or if they voluntarily choose to provide CEIS to students.

9 Example #2 Year: Format: Exceptional Student Element: Exceptional Student, IDEA Educational Environments Separate School: Districts should only use code D for students with disabilities receiving special education and related services for greater than 50 percent of the school day in non-residential public or private separate day school facilities.
