Calling all Part C and 619 Family Leaders! It takes teamwork to build effective state and local systems for young children with disabilities. You are an essential member of those teams, working in partnership with the other players.
In this session, facilitated by IDC and ECTA staff, we will present information and have a discussion of the changes to the 618 Child Find data collection for preschool educational environments. Educational environments for children ages 3–5 will now require a count of children who are 3 through 5 years of age on the state-determined collection date who are receiving preschool services but will no longer include those children who are age 5 and in kindergarten.
Thinking about improving your data system? Considering replacing it? Join and contribute to a discussion with former data managers as they share lessons they’ve learned. They’ve learned a thing or two based on their own state experience and their technical assistance with dozens of states. From using paper to using spreadsheets, distributed software, batch uploading, and centralized statewide systems, these former data managers have been there and done that.
Part C Coordinators are invited to join OSEP staff to hear updates related to the Part C SPP/APR, including the SSIP, as well as the launch of Differentiated Monitoring and Support (DMS) 2.0. OSEP will share information related to the FFY 2019 and FFY 2020 SPP/APR submissions will provide a general overview of OSEP’s vision to incorporate State system improvement efforts into DMS.
