DATA MANAGEMENT ALERT
ESS October 1 Data Collection (ODC) – Phase II Due Date Extended
Exceptional Student Services (ESS) is working with ADE-IT on troubleshooting issues with the reports and functionality for October 1 child count processing.
Since public education agencies (PEAs) cannot utilize reports between systems in reconciling their October 1 counts, the October 1 process will now be closing on January 25, 2023 at 5pm.
ESS expects the reports to function accurately soon, and we will notify the field when this happens. At this time, the SPED07 report has been paused until we can work through the issue with IT. PEAs should still continue working on clearing up any outstanding integrity error to ensure the most accurate information is submitted to the department.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please refer to the updated Important Dates document on the ODC timeline for a complete outline of the due date requirements for this data collection. If you have any questions or concerns, please email ESS Data Management at [email protected].
