Public Reporting of Section 618 Data: Regulations, Processes, and Pitfalls

Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference and Big B Add-on Day - Sept 8-11 2014

IDEA requires that states publicly report Section 618 data. To assist SEA special education directors and data managers in meeting these requirements, IDC is developing a TA tool to simplify regulatory language and requirements into one document that includes process tips and pitfalls. The presentation highlighted existing practice across the country and provided opportunity for attendees to review the current draft of the proposed TA tool.

IDC presents 618 Data Pre-submission Edit Check Tools for assisting states as they prepare their Part B data submissions. States can use the tools to identify potential edit check errors or errors in subtotals or totals prior to submitting the data to OSEP. Several of the tools are updated versions of the DTS originally published by (DAC), and this resource includes a zip file of 508 accessible versions of those tools. The MOE and CEIS Pre-submission Edit Check tool that IDC and CIFR developed allows states to input LEA-level data into the base data tab and generates edit check messages that are displayed in the auto-calculations tab.
