This report is your school district's compliance report for State Performance Plan Indicator 12, which is the 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 birthday. Once you verify your data as complete and accurate, this becomes your compliance notification and you must take the actions identified in the report.

The data elements that are displayed in this report are from the Special Education Events template for one chain that begins with Event Type Code EI01 (receipt of initial referral from Part C to evaluate a preschool child for special education eligibility). The following templates (or tables) are also used: Student_Lite (Student Demographics); and School_Enroll (Enrollment). Students with the following records are included in this report:

Enrollment Records:

Any of the following Special Education Events records are submitted:

EI01 – receipt of initial referral from Part C to evaluate the child for preschool special education eligibility (between 07/1/07 and 6/30/08)
EI02 – receipt of written parent consent to evaluate the child (all events after 08/31/08 are ignored)
EI03 – CPSE meeting to determine eligibility (all events after 08/31/08 are ignored)
EI04 – full IEP implementation (all events after 08/31/08 are ignored)

This report includes a listing of students who are included in the report, which are those students that meet the above criteria and a listing of students who are excluded from the report, which are those students that meet some of the above criteria but not all (including students with some missing records). School districts should use these lists to “verify” the accuracy of data submitted for each student. The reports with aggregate numbers provide the results the State will use in all Statewide and district level aggregations for compliance determinations, reporting and analysis.

Below is a description of the criteria for including student records in each cell of the six rows of data in this report.
