Detective Work: SOS for SAIS – Advanced & Census Reconciliation Workshops and Webinars

Maintaining special education (SPED) participation data in SAIS can be challenging. There are resources available to help! The advanced SOS for SAIS will cover the Status area in SDDI, the Transaction History tool and the IT Bulletin Board. Note that this session requires some working knowledge of special education in SAIS.

The ultimate goal of census reconciliation is to ensure that the final SPED participation data extracted from SAIS matches the verification letter submission. The Census Reconciliation session will include a review of the procedures along with some interactive case studies.

Both require detective skills. If you feel like you are drowning in either or both of these areas, ESS Data Management will come to the rescue! Bring your magnifying glass and we will bring the life preservers!


All regional workshops are scheduled from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and will cover all materials included in the two webinars.
