As of 2019/2020, districts must acquire Statewide Student Identifiers (SSIDs) and submit data for all Pre-K through Grade 12 students for whom the parent has consented to an evaluation, regardless if the child if found to be eligible for services.  This includes:

  • Infants and toddlers reffered to COEs and districts.
  • Preschool-age students referred to COEs or districts.
  • School-age students referred that are attending K-12 public schools.
  • School-age students referred that are attending private schools and are receiving services from a COE or district.
