Overview of Issue/Description of System or Process

NYSED maintains various systems to collect, edit, verify and report valid, reliable and accurate data to meet all State and federal data collection requirements for accountability and program improvement. The federal reporting requirements include the SPP, APR, and USDOE data collection requirements in Section 618 of IDEA which include data on Child Count, LRE, Exiting, Discipline, Personnel, State Assessments and Due Process.

Beginning in the 2005-06 school year, the SPP has significantly added to the need for data collection by requiring data from the State on 20 federal “indicators.”  The areas requiring collection and analysis of new types of data include:

NYS maintains the following systems for collecting data required under section 618 of IDEA and for the SPP:

The following Department processes contribute to the timeliness, quality and accuracy of State reported data: 

·       http://www.p12.nysed.gov/sedcar/data.htm (PD system)

·       http://www.p12.nysed.gov/irs/leap/home.shtml (LEAP system)

·       http://www.p12.nysed.gov/irs/STEP (STEP system).

 
Due dates are established for forms and dunning procedures are completed for missing data within a short timeframe following the due dates.

 Improvement Activities/Timelines/Resources

All appropriate processes and procedures to ensure timeliness, accuracy and quality of data listed under the Overview of Issue/Description of System or Process section will continue throughout the six-year cycle of the SPP.

NYS will begin to phase in the ISRS with unique student identifiers beginning in the 2005-06 school year and continuing throughout the six-year cycle of the SPP until all student specific data are collected through the single statewide system.
