2013 Winter Release – Key Dates and Summary of Changes

As we mentioned in our last Newsflash in September, the Winter data collections will be released on January 15, 2014, and will be due on February 28, 2014. In addition, the collection of the Title II and Title III 2011-12 final expenditure/obligation data is postponed until the 2013 Winter Release in an effort to reduce the reporting burden for LEAs.

As a heads up, below is a list of changes the various program offices have specified for the Winter data collections. If you have questions about these changes, please contact the appropriate program office.
