618 Data Collection Calendar
The 618 Data Collection Calendar outlines monthly tasks for 618 data collection reports to help states submit timely, accurate, and complete data. Activities for each data collection report are relevant to upcoming data submissions or previous data submissions for individual months, helping states effectively plan for their 618 data collection reports. Resources from both the U.S. Department of Education and IDC provide additional information about each data collection and tools states can use for meeting their data collection reporting responsibilities. The calendar can serve as a roadmap to develop timelines and data management processes to support new Part B data managers and a quick reference tool for more experienced Part B data managers.
