Removal of 2014-15 Early Roster Data from MSDS
To prepare for the 2015-16 Early Roster Collection, CEPI will remove all 2014-15 Early Roster records from the Staging Area on Monday, May 4, 2015. If you have any Early Roster data or reports you wish to keep, be sure to download and save your information by May 3. Once the data have been removed, users will no longer have access to Early Roster records or reports for the 2014-15 school year and it will not be possible for CEPI to re-create your data submission based on the data stored in our system. This will be the final chance you will have to retain these files. The 2015-16 Early Roster Collection will be available for users starting Wednesday, May 6, 2015. Districts may choose to report their expected student roster for fall 2015 beginning at that time.
Special Education Program Code 270 Information
It has come to our attention that some incorrect information was presented in a recent Illuminate Webinar regarding Special Education Program Code 270. This code is not being split into two different codes within MSDS. It is not necessary for the code to be changed because CEPI is able to determine which of the two early childhood special education program categories the child belongs, based on other data that is already reported. To see the distribution of early childhood special education participants, districts can run the “Early Childhood Special Ed Program Designation” report, available in staging and certified. This report will show which category was determined for each child reported with Program Code 270. Children may be placed in the IFSP category (which corresponds to the federal program code 271) or an IEP (which corresponds to the federal program code 272).
