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).
Spring 2015 General Collection now closed
The Spring 2015 General Collection closed at 11:59 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, March 25, 2015. Districts that did not certify the collection by the deadline will receive notices from CEPI with instructions for requesting that the collection be reopened. CEPI would like to thank all MSDS users and other district staff members for your efforts in submitting accurate and timely data.
