Subject: PD-9 - Public School District Report of Timely Determinations of Eligibility for Preschool and School-Age Special Education Services and Timely Transition of Children Referred from IDEA, Part C (Early Intervention) to Preschool Special Education Services Under IDEA, Part B During the 2005-06 School Year.

Important: Due Date is Between September 1 October 1 and September 15 October 16, 2006.

 

The PD-9 is a new report and requests data to evaluate the State’s and school district’s performance on two federal indicators, which are included in the State Performance Plan (SPP) that is required under section 616(b) of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). For information on New York’s SPP, go to http://www.p12.nysed.gov/specialed/spp/home.html. These indicators are as follows:

The State Education Department (SED) is requesting data for these two indicators from samples of school districts that are representative of the State. During the 2005-06 school year, one sample of school districts will submit data for Indicator 11 and another sample of school districts will submit data for Indicator 12. Over the next six years, all school districts will submit data for both of these indicators. Please go to http://www.p12.nysed.gov/sedcar/data.htm for a schedule of the school years in which school districts must submit these data.

School districts may submit data for Indicators 11 and 12 for all students. However, if reporting the data on fewer students reduces the data-reporting burden, data may be submitted for a sample of eligible students. If school districts choose to use sampling to report the data, the sampling guidelines provided in the general directions must be followed. The minimum number of eligible students to be included in the sample for Indicator 11 will be provided to school districts when school districts enter the number of preschool children requested in column B of the table above Tables 1 and 4 of this form. The minimum number of eligible students to be included in the sample for Indicator 12 will be provided to school districts when school districts enter data in the table above Table 7 of this form. Documentation of the sampling process, including worksheets, must be maintained and made available upon request for any future audits of these data.

Data for Indicators 11 and 12 are due to SED by September 15, 2006. These data must be submitted through the PD website at http://pd.nysed.gov or through the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) process. Paper copies of the PD-9 report will not be accepted. The web-based PD data entry system provides immediate feedback on any data reporting errors and allows school districts to make any necessary corrections. A User ID and password to access the web-based system has been mailed to the current contact person identified on the PD website. If your school district has a new contact person, or if this information was not received, please contact SEDCAR.

The data collected on the PD-9 report measures a school district’s compliance with important IDEA requirements related to timely evaluations and eligibility determinations for special education programs and services, and timely transition of children from Part C to Part B of IDEA. The data provided in this report will be used to monitor compliance with regulatory requirements.

During 2005-2006, Strategic Evaluation Data Collection Analysis and Reporting (SEDCAR) Unit personnel may be available to conduct a limited number of regional training programs regarding the various special education data forms (i.e., the PD forms). If you feel that such training would be useful to the data managers in your area, please contact your local Special Education Training and Resource Center (SETRC). The data collected through the PD forms are used in the following reports and activities:

If you have any questions or are in need of assistance in completing this report, please contact the SEDCAR Unit using the contact information provided on the letterhead.

Thank you.

General Instructions for PD-9

  1. During the 2005-06 school year, one statewide representative sample of school districts will complete Tables 1-6, which request data for federal indicator number 11. This indicator is “Percent of children with parental consent to evaluate, who were evaluated and eligibility determined within 30 school days for preschool children and within 60 calendar days for school-age students.” Over the next six years, all school districts will submit these data. See schedule for the school years in which school districts will submit these data at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/sedcar/data.htm.

  2. During the 2005-06 school year, one statewide representative sample of school districts will complete Tables 7-11, which request data for federal Indicator 12. This indicator is “Percent of children referred by Part C prior to age three, who are found eligible for Part B, and who have an IEP developed and implemented by their third birthday.” Over the next six years, all school districts will submit these data. See schedule for the school years in which school districts will submit these data at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/sedcar/data.htm.

  3. Data for federal Indicators 11 and 12 may be submitted for all students who meet the eligibility criteria. However, if reporting these data on fewer students reduces the data-reporting burden, data may be submitted for a sample of students. If school districts choose to use sampling to report these data, the sampling guidelines included with these directions must be followed. Documentation of the sampling process, including worksheets, must be maintained by school districts and made available upon request for any future audits of these data.

  4. For federal Indicator 11, include all students (or minimum number required in a sample) who are referred to determine eligibility for preschool or school-age special education programs and/or services between September 1, 2005 and June 30, 2006. In Tables 1-6, report on the number of eligibility determinations during the period between September 1, 2005 and August 31, 2006. Please note that in 2006-07 and in subsequent school years, school districts will report on all preschool and school-age students who are referred for special education programs and services between July 1 and June 30.

  5. For federal Indicator 12, include the number of all children (or minimum number required in a sample) who are referred from Part C to Part B for special education programs and services prior to age three between July 1, 2005 and June 30, 2006. In Tables 7-11, report on the number of children determined eligible and the number of those children whose IEPs were implemented between July 1, 2005 and August 31, 2006.

  6.  Please follow instructions provided above each table, as well as within the description of each line of data requested in Tables 1-11.


Sampling Guidelines for Federal Indicator Number Eleven

Indicator 11: Percent of children with parental consent to evaluate, who were evaluated and eligibility determined within 30 school days for preschool children and within 60 calendar days for school-age students. The data for this indicator is requested in this PD-9 form, Tables 1-6

Eligible population of students to be included in the sample of preschool children:
Identify all preschool children for whom parents provided consent to evaluate for eligibility for special education programs and services anytime during the 2005-06 school year (September 1, 2005 to June 30, 2006). In subsequent years, the school year will be from July 1 to June 30. Include all such preschool children, regardless of the source of referral.

Eligible population of students to be included in the sample of school age students:
Identify all school-age students for whom parents provided consent to evaluate for eligibility for special education programs and services anytime during the 2005-06 school year (September 1, 2005 to June 30, 2006). In subsequent years, the school year will be from July 1 to June 30. Include all such school-age students, regardless of the source of referral, and the school students attended or currently attend.

Minimum number of students to be included in the sample:
School districts may provide data on all students identified under the eligible populations or they may choose to provide data on a sample of eligible students. If school districts decide to provide data on a sample of eligible students, they must enter the number of eligible students in the tables above Tables 1 and 4 to determine the minimum number of students that must be included in the sample.

Method of selecting students for the sample:

  1. Assign all students who meet the criteria described in the eligible population a sequential number or use a number that already exists in your database. These numbers may be student identification numbers, social security numbers, or other randomly or sequentially assigned numbers. Sort all eligible students in numerical order.

  2. Use the random number table posted at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/sedcar/data.htm to select one number on this table as a beginning point. Use the first three or four digits of the first random number and find the student with the corresponding matching number on your list of eligible students. After picking the first student to be included in the sample proceed in order on the random number table from top to bottom and left to right and select the next student to be included in the sample by matching the first three or four digits of the number from the random number table with the student number. If the first three or four digits of the random number do not match any student number, skip to the next random number. Repeat this process until the required numbers of students have been selected for the sample.

Maintain documentation of how the sample was selected:

  1. Maintain documentation for a period of seven years, counting the reporting year as the first of the seven years.

  2. Documentation must include the list of all student names and numbers who were included in the eligible population, copy of the Random Number Table, the beginning number for selecting students, and a list of all students and their numbers who were selected for the sample.


Sampling Guidelines for Federal Indicator Number Twelve

Indicator 12: Percent of children referred by Part C prior to age 3, who are found eligible for Part B, and who have an IEP developed and implemented by their third birthdays. The data for this indicator is requested in this PD-9 form, Tables 7-11.

Eligible population of children to be included in the sample of preschool children:
Identify all preschool children who were referred to determine eligibility for special education programs and services from Early Intervention (IDEA, Part C) prior to age three during the 2005-06 school year (July 1, 2005 to June 30, 2006).

Minimum number of children to be included in the sample:

School districts may provide data on all children identified under the eligible population or they may choose to report on a sample of eligible children. If school districts decide to provide data on a sample of eligible children, they must enter the number of eligible children in the table above Table 7 to determine the minimum number of children that must be included in the sample

Method of selecting students for the sample:

  1. Assign all students that meet the criteria described in the eligible population a sequential number or use a number that already exists in your database. These numbers may be student identification numbers, social security numbers, or other randomly or sequentially assigned numbers. Sort all eligible students in numerical order.

  2. Use the random number table posted at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/sedcar/data.htm to select one number on this table as a beginning point. Use the first three or four digits of the first random number and find the student with the corresponding matching number on your numerical list of eligible students. After picking the first student to be included in the sample proceed in order on the random number table from top to bottom and left to right and select the next student to be included in the sample by matching the first three or four digits from the random number table with the student number. If the first three or four digits of the random number do not match any student number, skip to the next random number. Proceed in this fashion until the required numbers of students have been selected for the sample.

Maintain documentation of how the sample was selected:

  1. Maintain documentation for a period of seven years, counting the reporting year as the first of the seven years.

  2. Documentation must include the list of all students’ names and numbers who were included in the eligible population, copy of the Random Number Table, the beginning number for selecting students, and a list of all students and their numbers who were selected for the sample.
