DATA MANAGEMENT ALERT
NEW Special Education Data Dashboard
The NEW Special Education Data Dashboard (SEDD) opens on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 (today). The purpose of this application is to provide a one-stop shop for public education agencies (PEAs) to securely view their special education data as well as a redacted statewide view. By viewing relevant data in one place, PEAs can see how it all ties together and ultimately, how it all culminates into the indicators outlined in the State Performance Plan (SPP) / Annual Performance Report (APR).
User roles previously established in the archived Annual Data Collection (ADC) application have been transitioned to the new SEDD roles and related permissions. Users without previous access to the ADC application will need to request one of the applicable roles from their local ADEConnect Entity Administrator:
- SEDD LEA User: includes edit permissions
- SEDD LEA Signer: includes edit and signer permissions
To access the SEDD application, please login to ADEConnect, navigate to the Exceptional Student Services Portal and select the Special Education Data Dashboard button under Data Collection & Reporting.
Currently, the only active component that is accessible to PEAs is the Student Exit Data for FY 2022. From the home page of the SEDD application, you can select this component either through the ‘Data’ menu option or you can click ‘Go’ with the red box.
Exit data will be extracted from AzEDS daily and displayed after federal business rules have been applied (refer to the Exit technical assistance doc under the ‘Help’ menu option which will take you to the SEDD website that contains the applicable tools and resources). This data is REVIEW only. Any changes to this data will need to be made through your Student Information System and uploaded/synced to AzEDS. You will have until July 15, 2022, by 5:00pm to finalize your Exit data.
For the remainder of FY 2022 data requirements, we will activate Preschool Transition Data and Students Without Disabilities (expulsion) components on June 30, 2022. Note that these two sections will require data entry to complete.
Please be aware that this application will be expanded further to include the following items in FY 2023 and 2024:
- LRE Placement
- SPP/APR Indicators
- PEA Determinations/Risk Analysis
- Discipline for Students with Disabilities
- Data Visualization
If you did not attend the Special Education Data Updates (SEDU) webinar in April, feel free to review the recording available on our website under Training Opportunities or on our YouTube Channel. Note the SEDD portion begins at 3:57.
