End-of-Year (EOY) Update

The CDE would like to thank LEA staff for their hard work in submitting EOY data. The CDE recognizes there were many defects that made the submission a challenge. In the end, however, just over 95 percent of all LEAs certified EOY 2, 3, and 4. Congratulations!  

Submission Window for Fall 1 2012–13 Now Open

The Fall 1 2012–13 Submission Window opened today, Wednesday, October 3, 2012. The nightly snapshots will begin Wednesday evening.  LEAs may begin accessing the Fall 1 certification reports on October 4, 2012; however, LEAs, should wait until after the October 15 release to certify their Fall 1 data. As described in the next section, the October 15 release will include a new Free and Reduced Price Meal (FRPM) certification report, and will adjust the Socio-economically Disadvantaged Sub-group aggregate on existing reports to include the two new program codes, 181 - Free Meal Program and 182 - Reduced-Price Meal Program.
