XII–C EDFacts and Special Education Data
Bobbi Stettner-Eaton, U.S. Department of Education, EDFacts
Kelly Worthington, U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs
    This session focused on the accomplishments in the transition of data required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) from a legacy system to EDFacts. The discussion included an update on the states that have successfully transitioned their IDEA data collections to EDFacts—only submissions; successes and challenges of collaboration of a state EDFacts coordinator and IDEA Part B data manager to produce valid and reliably congruent data; technological challenges; the congruency data analysis process; and examples of EDFacts data usage by the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP).

XII–G SIF-Enabling Horizontal Integration and Data Warehousing for Reporting
Richard Nadeau and Jerri Fawcett, Horry County School District (South Carolina)
Aziz Elia, CPSI, Ltd.
    This presentation showed the problems districts face without data integration and how the implementation of a SIF Horizontal solution can resolve those problems. Taking the SIF implementation to the next level by using SIF to create and populate a dynamic data warehouse allows the ability for districts to make business driven decisions for future education needs.
