• Address data cleansing needs related to students with disabilities


    All principals and assistant principals / Deadline: September 2

    City Schools must ensure compliance with all federal and state regulations related to students with disabilities. The special education data cleansing reports serve as a critical internal mechanism to assist school staff in identifying data issues from MDOIEP (Maryland Online IEP) and/or SMS. There are eight Special Education reports that highlight issues with direct implications on services for students with disabilities and IDEA compliance. It is imperative to work with your school IEP Chair to review the reports and take necessary steps to address areas of concern. Data Cleansing Reports can be found on a daily basis by school based staff through EWEB. Support guides for navigating the data cleansing reports are available here:
