Identifying Resident & Non Resident Membership: I have a NonResident foster student in resident foster home who was educationally placed by the youth court in the natural parents school district to an out of district day treatment program. Does the day treatment program host school district report the home district as that of the natural parent or the foster parent? Is the foster parent's district responsible?
Identifying Resident & Non Resident Membership: "Did I hear correctly that it was implied that Special Education Students are not eligible for Homebound but instead MUST be placed in Instruction in the Home? A special education student may have a temporary medical necessity for Homebound, maybe a surgery that only requires Homebound for 2-3 weeks. This would not be an Instruction in the Home placement but simply one-one tutoring for a short time. Please clarify."
Identifying Resident & Non Resident Membership: We have sent letters to School Services to designate Ward of State but have not received any response...what do we do?
Identifying Resident & Non Resident Membership: The 4605 form....we have talked before about possibly having that template updated to include the type of facility it is....it would help the receiver to identify some necessary information for PIMS and for the Accounting Audit. (PRRI, Private, APS, etc) Also, this form should NOT be used unless the sender is going to be the PIMS reporter.
Identifying Resident & Non Resident Membership: "IF a student is illegal - the SD MUST educate? What paperwork to register? If a student has a student VISA, the SD does not have to educate? Please clarify if we misunderstood."
Identifying Resident & Non Resident Membership: Does Foster documentation have to be updated each school year?
Mainstream Calculations vs LRE % from IEP: "What happens for those students who enter a new school district when there is a laps of time of the new district IEP is implemented. The student will have 2 lines (1 regular ed and 1 special ed). Is the student considered special ed even before the new district implements its own IEP? Our SIS pulls the special ed data from a location other than entry/withdrawal."
Mainstream Calculations vs LRE % from IEP: Can you please clarify if a contract is needed, and why it would be needed, between two districts where district A hosts an IU classroom and district B has a student in an IU classroom who mainstreams out for classes with district A. I don't believe this is happening, however, the IU and the district hosting an IU class have a building agreement which covers mainstreaming
Mainstream Calculations vs LRE % from IEP: Language in PIMS manual for Field 15 in Student Calendar Fact states that a student is considered special ed as of the IEP Implementation date. Why wouldn't this be the ER date when they're identified as special ed?
Mainstream Calculations vs LRE % from IEP: Are Act 80 days deducted from Days Enrolled in calculating ADM
Student Calendar Fact (Field 15): "Some of our students are going to KidsPeace programs, such as KidsPeace Hospital or the Acute Program in Temple for medical necessities. We are told we should leave the students on our rolls due to a short term service. 1. Should we leave the students in our brick and mortar buildings or place the student in another ""out of distict"" PIMS reportable building i nour SIS since the student is not currently present in our brick and mortar building? 2. If the student is receiving educational services should we be recording attendance for the student in that placement? Should the attendance be present or medically excused? We would like Madeline to cover how to properly show their student calendar fact data. "
Student Calendar Fact (Field 15): "We would like Madeline Rogers to answer how we should be reporting the following student: A student was suspended for 10 days due to a fight and is awaiting a hearing to be placed outside of our brick and mortar building. He was marked for suspension for 10 days but he cannot get an intake into our alternate placement building until day 15. What should day 11-14 be marked as for his attendance? Should he be marked Excused or Suspended? "
Student Calendar Fact (Field 15): "Another question for Madeline Rogers... A student is sent to Children's Home Acute Partial Hospitalization Program based on medical necessity. Should the LEA keep the student on our rolls until the student returns back to our brick and mortar? Should schedule be maintained and the student be given attendance? Marked for Medically excused absence? OR Should LEA take this student out of the brick and mortar building and place the student in another reportable building? And drop schedule and not track attendance?"
Student Calendar Fact (Field 15): PLEASE RECONSIDER CHANGING the wording for the Special Ed date - implementation vs. ER date. Just because a student is identified - they or parents may refuse services. It should remain the IEP implementation date. This is the consensus of everyone in our room.
Homebound Code retired (Program Codes, PIMS Appendix F): I know that a student who receives homebound is counted in our attendance and membership, but there was a code that we put in to identify them as so. That code was retired, so my question is how would PDE know that a student is getting homebound instruction? Is there a form that needs to be submitted, because there is not a code in our SIS that would upload as such?
Instruction in the Home: We are several students who are getting Instruction in the Home. You said during the DQN meeting yesterday that we were to claim membership and attendance for these students. We have traditionally withdrawn the student from the school they were attending and placed them in our Census school that reports for Special Ed only. Should those students really stay enrolled in their home school and be reported that way? What is considered “Present/Absent” for those students?
Student Calendar Fact (Field 15): I was at the IU today for the DQE meeting. I have some questions concerning the special education ADM. Right now we have one enrollment record and the child accounting ADM is calculated as has always been based on our calendar days in session, etc. If this student becomes special education mid-year, are you saying that we need to withdraw the student as a regular education student and create a new enrollment as a special education student? We don’t have that process in place for this school year. Is it a requirement for this school year or is this something that we can institute for the 16-17 school year? Or do we need to adjust our records from September to now and going forward? Please advise.
Student Calendar Fact (Field 15): They are confused that every spec ed student - even if educated by home district all day - will need 2 entries figuring how much of their day was reg ed instruction and how much was spec ed instruction.
