• Interaction between policy and data –
FAQs
• Special education data that affects
funding
• Special Education Accountability and
its consequences, including “Indicator

• Reporting the special education event
record
Policy and Data - FAQs
What is “Out of Compliance?”
• Any time OEC staff notice a violation
of any special education law
• Most frequently noticed monitoring or
data review
• Most common reason noticed in data
for non-compliance is a late or
missing event
NOT Always Noncompliance

•
EMIS error reports
General Issues Reports
Fatal errors
Late events with acceptable reason
Federal Timelines for Events
http://www.edresourcesohio.org/ogdse
Consent to Initial ETR – 60 days
Annual Review of IEP – within one
year
Initial IEP for transitioning Part C –
before third birthday
Leap Year
• Does NOT affect requirement for
annual review
• DOES affect compliance with
timelines for child find events
• Count days between events to
ensure timelines have been met
Snow Days
• Non-compliance reason“01” – no
identified reason –
• Calamity (windstorm, flooding,
HVAC failure, or snow day) makes it
impossible to meet the timelines
• Federal procedural timelines
Parent Refuses Services
• Revocation of Consent at IEP
meeting - Report RIEP, outcome
IEPR
• Consent withdrawn at ETR/MFE
meeting – change CNST outcome to
CNRF
• Revocation of consent to existing
IEP – report CIEP
Amendments
• Not reported
• Cannot be used to change effective
dates of IEPS
RIEPs v. Amendments
• An RIEP re-sets
the timeline
• RIEP data used to
verify compliance
• Can be annual or
other review
• Cannot be used to
change effective
dates
• Minor changes to
existing document;
can’t change goals

FERPA Policies
• School officials with legitimate educational interest;
• Other schools to which a student is transferring;
• Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes;
• Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a
student;
• Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of
the school;

pursuant to specific State law.
Re-testing for OGT
• No relationship to exemption of
consequences
• 10th-grade score counted in state,
AYP, PI
• 11th grade, counted in 11th-grade
cumulative calculation only
• If re-tested, highest score used
Graduation Issues
• Conflict between IDEA/FAPE
requirements and AYP graduation
rate requirements
• District can’t make a decision to not
provide FAPE, even if it affects
graduation rate
Funding
• http://www.edresourcesohio.org/ogd
se/11_-_funding/document
Data and Funding
• Federal
– DCC
– Current ADM for pub and non-pub
– Current poverty data
• State Funding
– School Age
– Pre-School
December Child Count
• Determines total amount state gets
from federal government
• A formula divides that total federal
aid into district shares
• District share goes to districts and
private schools

School-Age Weights for
State Funding
• Funding NOT for an individual
student
• Weights currently reflect payment for
staff
• Higher weights when more staff are
required
Special Education Accountability
• Determinations
• Findings of non-compliance
• Confirmation of correction of noncompliance
Monitoring
• EMIS data is used as first step of
monitoring for EVERY LEA
• Districts with high levels of noncompliance in specific areas get
additional monitoring
• Fifty or so LEAs get on-site
monitoring
On-site Monitoring
• Team of 3-6 OEC employees
• Targeted selection of records for
review
• Records are reviewed for evidence
of non-compliance
• Records are compared to EMIS data
to verify EMIS submission
Indicator 20 Not Met If
• On-site review finds discrepancies between student
records and EMIS
• “09” code used frequently
• Data has been included in an inappropriate EMIS report.
• ODE staff confirm that data required to be reported was
not submitted to EMIS appropriately.
• District has either not maintained appropriate records or
not reported to EMIS
• The district shows a pattern of date entry errors
Indicator 20 Correction
• At the individual level when the
district has provided evidence that
data has been entered into its own
data system
• At the district level when none of the
above occur in a subsequent
reporting period.
Determinations
1) Performance on compliance
indicators;
2) Whether data submitted by the LEA
are valid, reliable, and timely;
3) Uncorrected noncompliance from
other sources; and
4) Any audit findings

Meets Requirements
3 - 3.99 Points Needs Assistance
2 - 2.99 Points Needs Intervention

IDEA Audit Findings
4 = No IDEA audit findings

reporting issues which can be
easily remedied by implementing
procedures according to A-133
guidance
2 = Moderate documentation and/or
reporting issues which would
require revision of internal
financial processes
1 = Major financial tracking issues
which would require the initiation
of appropriate financial and
accounting procedures

Sources of Indicator 20
Information
• Indicator 11 data analysis showed NO initial
ETR, but records showed an initial IEP for the
same students
• LEA records showed students with reportable
preschool transition conferences, EMIS did not
(Indicator 12)
• Students who were 16 had no secondary
planning code reported (Indicator 13)
• A few districts, based on their size, significantly
under-reported special education data
Calculating Determinations
OEC:
 Calculated determinations by averaging the points
assigned to the LEA for each of the areas listed previously
 Identified the overall LEA determination by linking the
average to the corresponding determination category

ETR Event Codes
• IETR – Initial ETR
• RETR – Review of ETR, or decision
that current documentation is
sufficient
• TETR – IEP team reviews ETR of a
transfer student, and accepts it in its
entirety
51
ETR Outcomes - Disability
Category
• Currently, districts also report a
disability category as a student
attribute
• Eventually, OEC hopes the ETR
outcome will be used as the
disability category for every table in
EMIS
Other ETR Outcomes
• ETDP -- ETR Resulted in Due Process
• ETEX -- Exiting Special Education.
THE IEP TEAM determines a child no
longer requires specialized instruction
or related services. NOT used if a
student graduates or withdraws or a
parent revokes consent for services
• ETNE -- Not Eligible for Services
Non-Compliance Reason
• Describes reasons why an activity
was not completed according to the
federally mandated timelines
• Some reasons remove student
records from calculation of federal
reporting
Non-Compliance Reason
** Not Applicable – Timelines were all met
01 No Identified Reason. Includes weather related delays
02 Staff Not Available - Summer Months
03 Staff Not Available - School Year
04 Scheduling Conflicts with Family
05 Parental Choice Documented --usually a PR-01
06 Parent Refused Consent OR repeatedly didn’t show up at
scheduled meeting and consent was never obtained
07 Child’s Health
08 Student’s Incarceration
09 Compliance with timelines, but incorrect/missing data
reported in a prior reporting period

Determining LRE Codes
IEP Section 7: DESCRIPTION(S) OF

• Use child’s schedule that would result from
