Child Count Data Date Change

The data used for the federal child count this year will be October 31. This is 30 days earlier than the previous snapshot date, and the October 31 date will align with other child counts required by state and federal law.

District reporting requirements for student data will not be affected by this change. The only data change will be the date that the Ohio Department of Education uses to extract the student data used for the count. IEPs that were due to be reviewed near the former December 1 reporting date will still be effective on October 31.
