EMIS NIEP Code

Over the past few weeks, ODE has received multiple questions about the use of the NIEP code. Analysis confirmed that in a substantial number of programs, NIEP codes have been submitted to EMIS and no additional reviews or revisions of the Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) have been reported.  This suggests large-scale misapplication or misunderstanding of this code. The NIEP is an EMIS code indicating that a required review has not yet occurred, but services are being provided.  It was created to ensure that a student is counted in state special education funding calculations during the process of revising and reviewing an existing IEP.

Universal Special Education Forms Project

The Ohio Department of Education, Office for Exceptional Children is currently exploring the feasibility of creating a universal system for electronic special education forms in Ohio. The universal system would be designed so that appropriate staff members in districts would have immediate availability of special education records for students transferring in to their districts, while also minimizing the burden of sharing documents to receiving districts when students transfer out. The first phase of this initiative is to determine the cost effectiveness, risks, technical constraints and needs both at the district and state levels related to implementation of a universal special education forms solution.
