Common Errors
• Districts not reporting children on
itinerant services as “no classroom”
• District of residence not reporting
preschool children on the special
education record
• Ensuring that the IEP date is current
as of December 1
October Report
UNIT FUNDING
UNIT FUNDING PROCESS
THUMBNAIL SKETCH
• Entities complete the PSE Unit application on the
web Aug - Sept
• Units are allocated by Nov 15 [usually same number as
the previous year]
• Information on staff and students entered into EMIS
October K reporting period
• Preschool students and staff AS OF DEC 1st
• Funding of allocated units depends upon data in
EMIS for districts and ESCs
• Close of October K correction period determines the
funding
Common Errors
• A child’s IEP must be in effect as of
December 1
– To count towards unit funding
• Otherwise child will be counted in the
columns for nondisabled peers and funding
may be reduced
Common Errors
• Staff with percent of time in
preschool (assignment 99412)
• Connecting children to teachers
• Combination teachers who do both
centerbased and itinerant need to be
reported more than once
STF_ECE_Staff Units Report
• Really should be called PSE Staff
• Three sections to check regularly to
correct errors

Common Errors-Accuracy Checks
• There are 3 ratings (E, K T)
• Each outcome has a rating.
– October
– Yearend
• Each outcome has “yes” or “no” recorded
for progress.
– F would apply only to initial entry ratings.
– In almost ALL cases there should be a Y for
progress.
Biggest Data Problems
1. Timely assessment and reporting of
the entry ECOSF
2. Progress question errors at exit
Biggest Data Problems
1. Timely Assessment and Reporting of
Entry ECOSF
• Children entering PSE services in one
assessment window had entry ratings
reported in a later assessment window
Assessment Windows
Beginning of school year to December 1 for
children entering PSE services in the Fall
Or
December 2 to May 15 for children entering
PSE services during this window
Biggest Data Problems
2. Progress Question Errors at Exit
• Impossible answers provided to the
progress question.
• Progress question at exit marked F.
• Not answering the progress question
on the exit ECOSF.
HELP
• Your Help is Needed – if you see
things that are out of line – send
back to the program supervisor.
• THANK YOU!
Indicator 12
TRANSITION FROM C TO B
SSID- for tracking C to B
Transition
• Children exiting Help Me Grow will
have an SSID assigned
• Local quarterly reports from Help Me
Grow will have the SSID
• Check data to avoid duplicates
Special Ed Record
• Preschool Transition Conference
(PSTC)= Trigger
• If a PR01 indicates there is no
suspected disability, the child should
be reported in the aggregate and not
have a special education record in
EMIS
Anticipated change after FY 2012
• Preschool Transition Conference
(PSTC)= Trigger
• If the conference is 6-9 months before the
child’s 3rd birthday, a PR01 may be used
to begin the evaluation/timeline later
• Child will have an IEP implemented by 3rd
birthday
• EMIS will indicate a noncompliance
• OEL&SR will investigate to verify
circumstances
Common Errors
• Data Entry
– Based upon monitoring, results in noncompliance
in
• Indicator 12- Transition from Part C
• Indicator 20- Accurate Data
• PSTC only
– Aggregate reporting instead
• Missing dates on special education record
• Only entering records in compliance- cross
check for 3 year olds
When to report
• If
– PSTC is in the spring
– The child will be 3 in the summer
– Events cross school years
• Report in the year the IEP was
implemented and child received
services
EMIS Issues
EMIS Issue - 1
LRE coding for two groups of children
A. In KG and 5 years old on Dec 1
B. In PS and 6 years old on Dec 1
– An appropriate LRE code for above children
will cause unable to “translate LRE error- must
report FN270”
– Error will show in December Child Count for
children above
LRE Coding Correction
• To correct district must add an FN270 element
with LRE the is most accurate for environment
the child is receiving services
EMIS Issue – 2
Percent of Time Greater than 100%
• Children in a class with ECE funding and
PSE itinerant services could have 150%
FTE
• FTE over 100% causes a “critical error for
both ECE and PSE educational entity
• Records with a “critical error” are still
accepted by EMIS and funding will not be
effected
Reevaluation
TRANSITION TO
KINDERGARTEN
Re-evaluation for Kindergarten
• Re-evaluation is required for
kindergarten transition
• Re-evaluation is required every three
years
Re-evaluation for Kindergarten
• Date of re-evaluation is entered into EMIS
in the school year in which it occurs
• Date of new IEP is entered into EMIS in
the school year in which it is completed.
• If these events occur after June 1st they
are entered in the October K reporting
period.
• New LRE code must be considered once
child enters kindergarten.
IEP Extension
• There is no such thing
• An IEP is for a maximum of one year
• An annual review is required at one
year and a new IEP is developed or
the child exits special education
Ohio’s Race to the Top
Early Learning Challenge Grant
What is the Early Learning
Challenge?
Voluntary, competitive federal initiative
Partnership between U.S. Departments of
Education and Health and Human Services
Addresses needs of most vulnerable children
• Low income
• Children with Disabilities
• English Language Learners
Five Areas to be Addressed
Measuring Outcomes and Progress
High Quality, Accountable Programs
Promoting Early Learning and Development
Outcomes for Children
Successful State Systems
Great Early Childhood Education Workforce
Ohio’s Goals for Results
1,300 newly rated, high quality settings
37,000 additional high needs children in
highly rated programs
 Closing the kindergarten readiness gap by
5% for high needs children.
By 2020, Ohio will only purchase services in
high quality settings.
Tiered Quality Rating
and Improvement System (TQRIS):
Single Framework for Quality
 All publicly funded early learning and
development programs participate (districts, child
care & family child care)
 Expanded program standards and move from 3
to 5 tiers with cost study and validation of new
tiers
 Test incentives for rated programs and co-pay
elimination for families
 Expand Teacher Education and Compensation
Helps (T.E.A.C.H) Scholarships
Timeline for Implementation
2011-12
Standards will be developed in all Essential
Domains of School Readiness
2012-13
Early childhood programs will align adopted
curriculum to the new standards
2013-14
New standards should be fully integrated into
early childhood programs
