This reporting Educational Environments resource is a suite of tools, with a technical guide updated with 2017-18 reporting clarifications as its foundation. State Part B data managers, 619 coordinators, local 619 personnel, technical assistance providers, and other interested parties can use the tools to help them report Educational Environments data for children ages 3-5 with disabilities as required for the OSEP Child Count and SPP/APR Indicator 6. States can use the tools as “stand-alone” materials or as a set.
The suite of tools includes
A document that contains a decision tree for reporting Educational Environments for Children Ages 3-5 with IEPs, the SPP/SPR Part B Indicator 6 Measurement Table, excerpts of technical information related to the file specifications for reporting Educational Environment data, and 2017-18 reporting clarifications
An interactive application that contains an interactive decision tree, glossary, and information on reporting categories with scenarios for educational environments for children ages 3-5.
A data template for calculating local data so that SEAs and LEAs can see in real-time the percentages of their children ages 3-5 attending and receiving services in specific educational environments. The worksheet calculates percentages based on LEA 618 educational environments data entered on the data tab and displays them on the percentage tab.

Format: Applications and SpreadsheetsSEA EDFacts Edit Check and Data Display Tools
IDC's SEA and LEA EDFacts Edit Check and Data Display Tools for assisting states as they prepare their Part B data submissions. States can use the tools to identify potential edit check errors or errors in subtotals or totals prior to submitting the data to OSEP. Several of the tools are updated versions of the DTS originally published by (DAC), and this resource includes a zip file of 508 accessible versions of those tools. The MOE and CEIS Edit Check and Data Display Tools that IDC and CIFR developed allows states to input LEA-level data into the base data tab and generates edit check messages that are displayed in the auto-calculations tab.
