Elpp reminders
ELPP Reminders

  • ELPP is based on preschool standards.

  • Old Standards – Developmental Standards for Preschool Children with Disabilities

    USE EETS SPREADSHEET – Very few left for 2013-14

  • Current Standards – Alabama Developmental Standards for Preschool Children –

    USE ELPP WEB-BASED PROGRAM

    Access standards at: (https://fp.auburn.edu/institute/elpp/)


ELPP

  • All standards in the Alabama Developmental Standards for Preschool Children are not ELPP standards.

  • ELPP standards are indicated by a diamond.




Elpp entry data
ELPP Entry Data

  • Entrydata should be entered for all preschool students, except those whose initial IEP signature date is less that 45 days prior to the end of the school year and will enter kindergarten in the Fall.

  • Data should be gathered in a collaborative process from multiple sources, entered on the paper copy, then submitted.

  • ELPP entry should be completed within 45 days of the initiation of special education services. (Changed from 30 to 45 days). 45 days is automatically calculated based on the initial IEP meeting date(same as the initial IEP signature date).

  • Meaning of “initiation of special education services”:

    • “Services” means when the LEA actually begins special

      education services.

    • “Services” does not mean IEP meeting date ,

    • eligibility date, third birthday, etc.

  • In most instances, the IEP begins immediately following the initial IEP meeting (signature) date.

  • Six months of services will automatically be calculated based on the “Initial IEP meeting (signature) date” field in the student folder for students who will exit the same year as entry.
