Subject: ACTION REQUIRED: End of Year Data Collection for 2011-12

Source: Mary Corey, Office of Data System Management, Special Education Data

Intended Audience: Special Education Directors and Personnel

Date: April 23, 2012

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 WITH INITIAL EVALUATIONS conducted during the 2011-12 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 survey where the data can be reported.  Simply enter your county-district code, fill in the data, and click Done:  https://www.research.net/s/12-Private.  

All districts must submit this information even if all of the responses are zero.  All districts must submit the form by June 30, 2012.  If you have questions regarding this collection, contact the Special Education Data Section at 573-751-7848 or email speddata@dese.mo.gov.
