Office for Exceptional Children February Update
The Ohio Department of Education, Office for Exceptional Children, will be releasing the 2012-2013 Special Education Performance Profiles next week. Information to access the Profile (a username and password) will be distributed through email to local education agency (LEA) Superintendents and Special Education Directors. It is important that the LEA access and review the information in the Profile in a timely manner as it may include findings of noncompliance which require correction within the timelines specified in the Profile. The Profile is based on 2011-2012 data and is for internal LEA use. The Profiles are not accessible to the public since the data is not masked. If LEAs need assistance in understanding the Performance Profile, the regional State Support Teams (SSTs) are available to provide support. For a listing and contact information for the regional SSTs, visit the ODE website keyword search "State Support Teams".
