Less Than 6 Months of Service

  • 6 Months of Service – Exit data must be reported for all children who receive a minimum of 181 days of ECSE service.

  • If child exits ECSE and has not received 6 months (181 days) of ECSE service – you must enter the exit date but not exit ratings into Indicator 7 application on Special Education Web Portal.

  • If child enters ECSE less than 181 days from the child’s 6th birthday - do NOT begin outcomes rating process.

Transfer Children

  • LEA that completes the child’s Initial IEP includes the child in the Child Outcomes process.

  • If child transfers into your LEA- do not include child in Child Outcomes process unless you do not accept the IEP and complete a new Initial IEP.

  • If child transfers out of your LEA – child is done with Child Outcomes process – enter appropriate exit data into the Indicator 7 Child Outcomes application.
