Subject: ACTION REQUIRED: End of Year Data Collection for 2009-10 Due Date: June 30, 2010

Source: Mary Corey, Director, Data Coordination

Intended Audience: Special Education Directors and Personnel

Date: May 14, 2010

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 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.  One collection outside of MOSIS/Core Data is for students who are parentally-placed in private schools.

DISTRICTS MUST REPORT THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION FOR PARENTALLY-PLACED STUDENTS ATTENDING A PRIVATE SCHOOL WITHIN THEIR JURISDICTION.

1. The number of students evaluated during the 2009-10 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 and is also NOT the same as the number of students reported by nonpublic schools in October of each year.

The following link will take you to a web screen where the data can be reported.  Simply select your county-district code and 2009-10, fill in the data, and click 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, 2010.

If you have questions regarding this collection, contact the Special Education Data Coordination Section at 573-526-0299 or email webreplyspedc@dese.mo.gov.
