8 Implementing race/ethnicity changes Resulting changes to implement guidance EDFacts specs modified for to enable race/ethnicity reporting by either category set (5 or 7) ESEA data groups that require subgroup reporting were changed to utilize a different category set (‘major racial and ethnic groups’) EDFacts specs modified for to require race/ethnicity reporting by only the new 7 category structure (except for some Perkins/CTE specs) Business rules modified Structure of CSPR questions and IDEA tables updated 2/16/2012Incorporating New Programs Into EDFacts

9 ARRA – SFSF Metrics and indicators were defined for state program implementation Responsibility of states to publish data for the public Reporting elements put focus upon new pieces of the ESEA Reauthorization Blueprint College and Career Readiness Teachers and School Leaders Data Systems Some, but not all, reporting elements were also added to EDFacts as part of our 2010 clearance package 2/16/2012Incorporating New Programs Into EDFacts

10 ARRA – SFSF Since adding elements to EDFacts SFSF funding has ended Timelines for states to report data publicly have changed Some data have been reported to EDFacts on new data groups Interest in “SFSF data” has increased among other ED programs, even as program itself ‘comes to a close’ Current plans for using SFSF data School Improvement Grants Race to the Top ESEA Flexibility 2/16/2012Incorporating New Programs Into EDFacts

11 School Improvement Grants (SIG) Program was in the process of defining new performance indicators and finalizing new program guidance at the time of the 2010 EDFacts clearance Attachment B-6 of that clearance package outlined how EDFacts data groups would be used to provide new performance indicators Some brand new data groups Several indicators based upon existing data EDFacts specifications, but not the EDFacts Submission System, were used to collect baseline data on school year /16/2012Incorporating New Programs Into EDFacts

12 School Improvement Grants (SIG) Immediate actions to be taken with SIG data PSC will be submitting the collected baseline data through the ESS SIG program office is currently processing ‘leading indicator data’ on school year Dropout Rates – (needs files 032 and 052) Discipline Incidents (File 030) SIG program’s analysis plan depends upon timely submission of File 167 – File is due now Data on Truants is also part of SIG leading indicator work (File 131) – Due in March 2/16/2012Incorporating New Programs Into EDFacts

13 Race to the Top (RTT) Currently implementing in a subset of states Performance indicators are built around many of the same new data elements within SFSF and SIG Unit of analysis is the state or the LEA RTT Annual Performance Report process for Needed data during the summer 2011 Reading and Math proficiency information HS Graduates Post-Secondary Enrollment Graduation rates Alternate submission system built to collect state level data before ESS was available Working to enable files earlier to allow RTT states to submit data through ESS 2/16/2012Incorporating New Programs Into EDFacts

14 ESEA Flexibility Awarded to 10 states last week (and one this week) Second round coming quickly Expected Implications: Data on public school choice, supplemental educational services, corrective and restructuring actions may no longer be reported Annual Measureable Objectives will be redefined and/or reset Accountability determinations will be made based upon modified criteria 2/16/2012Incorporating New Programs Into EDFacts

15 ESEA Flexibility Reporting Requirements: States granted ESEA Flexibility will be required to provide the Department certain reports, data and evidence regarding progress in implementing their approved plans. ED will take steps to utilize existing data collections and monitoring opportunities to gather as much of this information as possible. EDFacts and the CSPR will continue to be the primary collection vehicles. 2/16/2012Incorporating New Programs Into EDFacts

16 ESEA Flexibility States granted flexibility would need to use their CSPR answers on the following topics to specifically address the implementation of their approved plans: Changes to content standards and assessments Assessment participation (for subgroups and on alternate assessments) Cohort graduation rates List of priority, focus and reward schools, and reasons for their identification 2/16/2012Incorporating New Programs Into EDFacts
