In September 2006, the Division of Special Education conducted regional workshops to train First Steps program providers and Early Childhood Special Education providers on the process for collecting and reporting data regarding early childhood outcomes (ECO).  This reporting requirement from the U. S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), is designed to report performance data for young children receiving services through Parts B and C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  Information about these trainings can be found at the following website: http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/ECOtraining.html.  This website also includes the data collection spreadsheet that MUST be used to submit the data to DESE. 


ECSE and SPOE staff need to submit any data compiled during 2006-07 by July 1, 2007.  For further information about what is required for submission, please visit this Q&A document:  http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/PDF/ECO-QandAOct2006.pdf.   


The spreadsheet should be emailed to Bill.Connelly@dese.mo.gov.  Questions can be directed to the same email address.
