DATA MANAGEMENT ALERT
FY 2023 October 1 Data Collection Application is now OPEN
The October 1 Data Collection (ODC) application is now open, and Phase I is underway. This phase includes the submission of your Public Education Agency (PEA) Special Education (SPED) student count and personnel Full-Time Equivalency (FTE) data.
The ODC child count is a crucial process consequential for federal reporting, determining federal allocations, and providing information for the state to make educational determinations over time.
All PEAs are required to verify the aggregate count of students receiving SPED services over October 1, including zero counts. This is an internal count using your student information systems and student rosters; AzEDS reports should not be used to gather Phase I Verification Count.
This data is due Wednesday, November 16, 2022. More information and training is available on the ESS October 1 Data Collection website.
Please refer to the Important Dates document on the ODC timeline for a complete outline of deadline requirements for this data collection.
