2018-2019 Special Education Profiles sent Dec. 6


Every year, each school district receives a Special Education Profile displaying the district's performance on key indicators established by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The profile also informs the district of any required activities based on these indicators. Districts must complete all required activities to demonstrate compliance with IDEA.
The design of the Special Education Profile helps districts facilitate continuous improvement in their special education programs with longitudinal data. The organization of data is around four key questions that assess kindergarten readiness, achievement levels, preparedness for life beyond high school and services for children with disabilities.
The Department released districts’ 2018-2019 Special Education Profiles on Dec. 6, with notifications emailed to superintendents, special education contacts and community school sponsors. Profiles are available through the Department’s Secure Application for Enterprise (SAFE) web portal. After logging in to SAFE, select the link for Special Education Profiles & Ratings.
District users must have one of the following roles in the Ohio Educational Directory System (OEDS), assigned by their district’s OEDS administrator, to access these reports:

  • Superintendent;
  • Assistant Superintendent;
  • Superintendent Designee;
  • Special Education Contact;
  • Director-Special Education-General;
  • Coordinator-Special Education-General;
  • Supervisor-Special Education-General;
  • Primary Contact-Sponsor.
