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.
