Educational Environments
  • The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) has changed data reporting for preschool environments.
  • Previous categories of early childhood, part-time/part-time, and early childhood special education have changed.
  • A new formula is in effect immediately.
educational environments3
Educational Environments
  • Reporting to OSEP will reflect

• % categories in an early childhood program:

80% of time or more, 40% - 70%, less than 40%

• % in separate class, separate school, residential.

• % served in home or service provider location.

educational environments4
Educational Environments
  • When reporting EE for children ages 3 through 5, districts will now be required to report % of time spent in any “regular” early childhood programs
  • Early childhood program includes at least 50% non-disabled children:

•Head Start

• Kindergarten

• Private preschools

• Early Childhood Block Grant/Preschool for All Programs

• “Blended” programs

• Child care programs

coding helpful hints
Coding:Helpful Hints

• Half day

equals 2.5 hours per day or 750 minutes per

week

  • Whole day

equals 6.5 hours per day or 1950 minutes

per week (includes lunch, quiet time and

recess)

  • For purposes of reporting, a child's week may not exceed 1950 minutes.
coding educational environments
CodingEducational Environments
  • Coding Specifics:
    • If the child attends a regular early childhood program, even if the district is not funding the placement,
    • use Codes 20, 21, or 22.
use early childhood codes 20 21 or 22 when
Use Early Childhood Codes20, 21, or 22 when:
  • Child receives special education in a “blended” classroom and at least 50% of the children are non-disabled.
  • District sends itinerant staff to child care center, Head Start, community preschool program, ECBG or PFA classroom.
use early childhood codes 20 21 or 22 when8
Use Early Childhood Codes 20, 21, or 22 when:
  • Child is dual-enrolled in ECSE and head Start or pre-kindergarten
  • Child comes to an elementary school for speech therapy (“drop-in”) and district knows that the child spends remainder of the day in child care, Head Start, or community preschool.
  • Child spends ½ day in an ECSE class and then attends child care center for remainder of the day.
calculating time in regular early childhood programs
Calculating Time in Regular Early Childhood Programs
  • Numerator (A) = amount of time per week the child spends in a regular early childhood program (if amount of time is unknown, use normal elementary school day bell-to-bell.)
  • Denominator (B) = total amount of time the child spends in regular EC program PLUS time child receives special education and related services outside of regular EC program.
    • If child is pulled out of the regular EC program to receive special education, this is considered time outside the regular early childhood program. Include this time in the denominator but not the numerator of the calculation.
  • The result is multiplied by 100.
  • Formula: A/(A+B)X100 = Percent time = Determines Code
example
Example
  • Child receives early childhood special education in a blended classroom for 450 mpw. The child also receives speech therapy in the classroom for 40 mpw. 100%Code 20 (All services are provided in the regular education program.)
  • Same scenario except the speech therapy is done outside of the classroom in the therapy room.
  • A/(A+B)X100710/750 = .95 X 100 = 95%Code 20
example11
Example
  • Child attends an early childhood special education instructional class in the morning and is transported to a childcare program for the remainder of the day.

A/(A+B)X100 1200/1950 =.62 X 100 = 62%

Report the child under Code 21.

example12
Example
  • Early Childhood Program less than 40% of time:

• Child is placed in early childhood regular education or Kindergarten ½ day program (750 minutes per week) and receives special education and related services outside of the regular ed classroom for 500 minutes per week. Child does not attend any other early childhood program.

A/(A+B)X100250/750 = .33 x 100 = 33% Code 22

Educational Environment
  • Use Early Childhood Code 23 when

•Child is in a self-contained ECSE

class (with less than 50% non-disabled

children) for the entire day.

• Report child under this code even if the

child also receives special education

services at home or in a service provider

location.

educational environment14
Educational Environment
  • Use Early Childhood Code 24 (in a Separate School) when

• the early childhood class is in a public or

private special day school (placement made

by the district) designed specifically for

children with disabilities

• Report child under this code even if the child

also receives special education services at

home or in a service provider location.

educational environment15
Educational Environment

● Use Early Childhood Code 25 (in a

Residential Facility) when

• Child is served in a residential facility

or a residential medical facility on an

inpatient basis

• Report child under this code even if the

child also receives special education

services at home or in a service provider

location.

educational environment16
Educational Environment

● Use Early Childhood Code 26 (home) when

• Child receives all special education

services in the home. Include

children who receive special

education both at home and in a

service provider location.

educational environment17
Educational Environment
  • Use Early Childhood Code 27 (service provider) when

• Child receives “drop-in” services at an

elementary school and is not in an early

childhood program – this is only service

child receives.

• Child receives services funded by district from

a service provider – this is the only service

child receives.

  • Scenario 1: Child attends a community preschool 3 days per week for 2 hours per day. Child has a speech only IEP and receives 30 minutes per week of speech therapy in the therapy room at the district elementary school.
  • Calculate.

a. Hours spent in the regular early childhood program.

(A) = 6

b. Hours spent receiving special education and related services outside of a regular early childhood program.

(B) = .5

A/(A+B)X100 = 6 / 6.5 x 100 = 92% Code: 20

slide20
Scenario 2: Child does not attend any preschool or childcare program. The child has a speech only IEP for 20 minutes per week and the service takes place at the district elementary school.

Calculate.

A. Hours spent in the regular early childhood

program (A) = 0 B. Hours spent receiving special education and

related services outside of a regular early

childhood program (B) 20 mpw

A/(A+B)X100 = 0 / .20 X 100= 0% Code: 27

slide21
Scenario 3: Child receives early childhood special education services in a blended class room for 450 minutes per week. The child also receives speech therapy in the classroom for 45 minutes per week..

Calculate.

A. Hours spent in the regular early childhood program (A) = 750

B. Hours spent receiving special education and related services outside of a regular early childhood program. (B) = 0

A/(A+B)X100 = 750 / 750 x 100 = 100% Code: 20

(All services are provided in the regular education program.)

slide22
Scenario 4: Child receives early childhood special education services in a blended class room for 450 minutes per week. The child also receives speech therapy outside the classroom in the therapy room for 45 minutes per week.

Calculate.

A. Hours spent in the regular early childhood program (A) = 750

B. Hours spent receiving special education and related services outside of a regular early childhood program. (B) = 45

A/(A+B)X100 = 750 / 795=.94 x 100 = 94% Code: 20

slide23
Scenario 5: Child receives early childhood special education services in a blended class room for 450 minutes per week. The child receives 30 mpw of occupational therapy provided in the classroom. Also, the child receives speech therapy outside the classroom in the therapy room for 45 minutes per week.

Calculate.

A. Hours spent in the regular early childhood program (A) = 750

B. Hours spent receiving special education and related services outside of a regular early childhood program. (B) = 45

A/(A+B)X100 = 750 / 795=.94 x 100 = 94% Code: 20

slide24
Scenario 6: The district has two preschool classrooms in the building that are right next to each other. In the AM session, one classroom has 20 Pre-K children on the roster. The other classroom has 10 ECSE children on the roster. The ECSE children participate in center time, gross motor/recess, and snack (120 minutes) with the Pre-K children.

Calculate.

  • Hours and minutes spent in the regular education program. A = 600
  • Hours spent receiving special education and related services outside of a regular early childhood program.

B = 150

  • 600/750 = .80 x 100 = 80% Code = 20
slide25
Scenario 7: The district has two preschool classrooms in the building that are right next to each other. In the AM session, one classroom has 20 Pre-K children on the roster. The other classroom has 10 ECSE children on the roster. The ECSE children participate in center time (60 minutes) with the Pre-K children.

Calculate.

  • Hours and minutes spent in the regular education program. A = 300
  • Hours spent receiving special education and related services outside of a regular early childhood program.

B = 450

  • 300/750 = .40 x 100 = 40% Code = 21
slide26
Scenario 8: Child receives home-based early childhood special education services for 90 mpw in his/her home. The child comes to the district elementary school for 30 mpw of speech and every other week for occupational therapy (60 monthly). Code 26 Home
  • No calculations are needed because child receives special education in the home or at the babysitters. See Code 26 explanation on page 4 of your blue handout.
slide27
Scenario 9: Child attends community preschool and has a speech only IEP for 40 mpw. The child is privately placed by parents at the community preschool. The child comes to the local district elementary school twice per week and receives speech therapy in the therapy room with a group of two other preschool speech children.

Calculate.

Hours or minutes spent in the regular early childhood program A = 1950

  • Hours or minutes spent receiving special education and related services outside of a regular early childhood program B = 40

A/(A+B)X100 1910/1950 = .98 x 100 = 98% Code 20

slide28
Scenario 10: Child attends a district instructional early childhood program (half day) that is located in the district unit office building. The child is in the classroom for special education services with the teacher for 600 mpw and receives 30 mpw of PT, 60 mpw of OT, and 60 mpw of speech therapy. Speech is provided in the classroom but PT and OT are provided in therapy rooms.
