Data Collection Tools for Students with Disabilities
As district staff members develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), many find it helpful to summarize at the same time any special education information that will need to be reported in the Education Management Information System (EMIS). To assist in summarizing the information, an optional data collection tool is available.
Data Collection Tools for Students with Disabilities (2013 School Year)
Data Collection Form
This form is a management tool that districts may use to record special education data for submission to EMIS in the 2013-14 school year. Once again, districts are not required to use this tool. The form contains the fields for data that must be submitted in EMIS for this school year, and it may be useful in managing the collection of required EMIS data. Districts may amend the tool in any way they find useful.
This form may updated again throughout the year, If changes in federal data reporting requirements or changes in EMIS make changes to this form necessary, OEC will update this form.
Reporting Eye Exams
Senate Bill (S.B.) 316 continues the requirement for students with disabilities to undergo a comprehensive eye examination within three months of receiving special education services for the first time. A new reporting requirement was identified in S.B. 316 which requires ODE to collect and report data about the implementation of this law. Although the data collection mechanism to fulfill the reporting requirement has not yet been identified, OEC believes that data will be more accurate if districts maintain a record of eye exams throughout the school year. Below is a tool that will assist in that effort. There is no requirement to use this particular tool, but the information on it will be collected at the end of the school year.
