What's New
Early Childhood Fall Collection Close Reminder
The Early Childhood Fall collection will close at 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, November 13, 2019. 
Fall General Collection Timeline Change

Recent changes in state law impact the reporting timeframe for the MSDS Fall and Spring General Collections, as follows:

  • Districts must submit and certify no later than the fifth Wednesday after count day.
  • Districts must resolve any pupil membership conflicts with other districts, correct any data issues and recertify no later than the sixth Wednesday after count day.

For the Fall 2019 General Collection, districts must have their collections in a certified status by 11:59 p.m. EST on Nov. 6. Between Nov. 6 – 13, districts may decertify to resolve FTE conflicts and make further corrections, but collections must be recertified by 11:59 p.m. EST on Nov. 13.


MSDS Report Changes

Due to updates to the Economically Disadvantaged Report, CEPI has retired the Supplemental Nutrition Report.  Any information previously available in the supplemental nutrition report is now more easily accessed within the economically disadvantaged report.  This new report will include an unduplicated economically disadvantage count on the summary tab which will make it easier to understand the number of students included in your district’s economically disadvantaged subgroup.


Additionally, the Economically Disadvantaged Report has been moved within MSDS; it is no longer available under the General Reports.  You may access the report either within your Staging Reports or within the Certified Reports.  The report will generate data based on your user role within MSDS. All MSDS authorized users will be able to see the Summary section of the report, but only MSDS users with SNE user permissions will be able access the Student Details section.
