Reporting LEA MOE Data to OSEP
Preparing & Submitting Your Data
States submit their data annually through the EDFacts Metadata and Process System (EMAPS), which opens in April, with a resubmission period from July through August.
Data elements. Categories of LEA-level data elements include: basic identification information; IDEA 611 and 619 allocations; LEA MOE compliance status (beginning May 2018); MOE reduction amounts if taken; whether the LEA reserved IDEA allocations as part of comprehensive (required) or voluntary provision of coordinated early intervening services (CEIS); and the amount of IDEA funds reserved for CEIS.
Writing data notes. Data notes are a helpful way to explain your data and allow external users to understand the nuances of your data. OSEP may require an explanation from the SEA regarding data warnings that are not due to rounding. SEAs can provide a data note directly in EMAPS using the comment field, or they can provide data notes via the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Max system.
