Intended Audience: Special Education Directors and Personnel

Date: May 19, 2008

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act requires the state to collect various data from districts.  Most of this data is collected through MOSIS/Core Data with a few additional collections gathered through other reporting processes.  Two collections outside of MOSIS/Core Data are for (1) students who are parentally-placed in private schools and (2) students who have received early intervening services (EIS).  Following is an explanation of each of those collections.

Early Intervening Services (EIS)

IDEA allows districts to use up to 15 percent of IDEA Part B funds to provide EIS to students who have NOT been identified as needing special education and related services, but who need additional academic and behavioral support to succeed in a general education environment.  EIS can include "professional development (which may be provided by entities other than local educational agencies) for teachers and other school staff to enable such personnel to deliver scientifically based academic instruction and behavioral interventions, including scientifically based literacy instruction, and, where appropriate, instruction on the use of adaptive and instructional software; and providing educational and behavioral evaluations, services, and supports, including scientifically based literacy instruction" (20 USC 1413 (f)(2)).  Federal guidance on EIS is located at http://idea.ed.gov/explore/home.

All districts must submit information regarding provision of EIS, however, if the district DID NOT provide any EIS services OR provided EIS services, but DID NOT use Part B IDEA funds, then the district should enter "zero" for both items.

Districts that provided EIS using Part B IDEA funds must report the following: 

1. Number of students who received EIS using IDEA Part B funds who were not eligible for IDEA services at the time they received these services from your district during the 2007-08 school year.  Include children in grades kindergarten through 12.

2. Number of students with disabilities on the December 1, 2007, child count who received EIS using IDEA Part B funds at any time during the previous two school years (2005-06 and/or 2006-07).

Parentally-placed private school students

Districts must report the following information for parentally-placed private school students within their jurisdiction.

1. the number of students evaluated during the 2007-08 school year 2. the number of those evaluated that were found eligible 3. the number of those found eligible that received special education or related services from your district.

Note: This is NOT a total count of parentally-placed private school children served by your district.

The following link will take you to a web screen where the data can be reported.  Simply select your county-district code and 2007-08, fill in the data and click on submit:  http://dese.mo.gov/forms/divspeced/a5002613/a5002613.html.  All districts must submit this information even if all of the responses are zero.  All districts must submit the form by June 30, 2008.
