Educational Environments Ages 3-5: B6 Reporting Tools 2017-2018 Clarifications and Interactive Application

This reporting Educational Environments resource is a suite of tools, with a technical guide updated with 2017-18 reporting clarifications as its foundation. State Part B data managers, 619 coordinators, local 619 personnel, technical assistance providers, and other interested parties can use the tools to help them report Educational Environments data for children ages 3-5 with disabilities as required for the OSEP Child Count and SPP/APR Indicator 6. States can use the tools as “stand-alone” materials or as a set. 

The suite of tools includes 

  • A document that contains a decision tree for reporting Educational Environments for Children Ages 3-5 with IEPs, the SPP/SPR Part B Indicator 6 Measurement Table, excerpts of technical information related to the file specifications for reporting Educational Environment data, and 2017-18 reporting clarifications    

  • An interactive application that contains an interactive decision tree, glossary, and information on reporting categories with scenarios for educational environments for children ages 3-5.

  • A data template for calculating local data so that SEAs and LEAs can see in real-time the percentages of their children ages 3-5 attending and receiving services in specific educational environments. The worksheet calculates percentages based on LEA 618 educational environments data entered on the data tab and displays them on the percentage tab.

When the LEA 618 educational environments data is simply entered on the data tab, the percentages will be calculated and displayed on the percentage tab. The use of this tool will allow SEAs to compare the percentages of children within educational environments across LEAs.
