Finalized Document Status Report
 SESIS now includes a Finalized Document Status Report that enables
staff members to track errors that are preventing IEP information
from flowing back to CAP.
 The report shows all documents that are required to flow back to
CAP that have been finalized in SESIS, the date they were finalized
and their current status.

Finalized Document Status Report
The report displays four possible types of document status:
- Action Needed – includes a “Go to Troubleshooting” link which
takes you to a page that assists in identifying and resolving the
problem or problems.
- Pending – the document is processing. This status should not
last more than a few days.
- Known Issue – there was a problem with the document and it
is being worked on without the need for your involvement.
- Successful – the information has passed to CAP
The report is updated on a nightly basis – each day it is opened,
staff members will see the most current information.

Finalized Document Status Report Communication
 An email was sent on October 20th to IEP team members that
have one or more finalized documents with errors that are
preventing the flow of data to CAP.
 The email provided instructions on how to utilize the report in
order to troubleshoot the documents and correct the errors.
 Typically documents have more than one error needing
correction, so be sure to review the entire troubleshooting guide
for every document with a status of Action Needed.
 If you do not have access to CAP (e.g. special education teachers)
you must find the CAP person at your school who can help.

Amendment/Reconvene – Considerations
 Is the case an Annual, Mandated 3-Year, or Reevaluation? The
IEP can be amended.
 Is the case an Initial? The IEP must be reconvened (this is a
SESIS constraint).
 Can this year’s IEP meeting be held now?
 If you do this you will still see the old IEP showing up as “Action
Needed” on the report.
Review pages 72 -73 of the SOPM for a complete description of
IEP amendments

Steps for Amending or Reconvening a Finalized IEP
The following sections which had state changes on June 30th need to
be regenerated and reviewed before finalizing:
 Student Needs Related to Special Factors
 Measurable Annual Goals
 Recommended Special Education Programs and Services
 Twelve Month Service and/or program
 Testing Accommodations
 Participation in State and District Wide Assessments
 Special Transportation/Placement Recommendation
 Summary Page

A Few Best Practices
 After finalizing your document, monitor your progress on the report.
 If you decide to delete an IEP and create another, be sure your
process stage is consistent with the original when creating the
Notice.

In Case You’re Wondering ….
 Why can’t you “just tell me” what’s wrong?
- Because there are several systems involved (CAP, SESIS, ATS, SEC)
and other “behind the scenes” data systems.
 Why are there so many steps?
- A very high percentage of the affected IEPs have more than one
issue and we don’t want people going through this process more
than once – especially if it’s going to involve the parents.
 Why can’t you just fix it for me?
- Only members of the IEP team – people who were present at the
conference and understand the child’s needs – can determine
what the right recommendations are.
