11/18/2013 - December Child Count Extended and School Change
The deadline for Certification Status for the December 2013 Child Count has been extended to December 20, 2013. All LEAs, Charter Schools, and State Operated Programs should still complete initial submissions between December 2 and December 6, 2013.
Due to problems with school information, the NCDPI will be unlocking the General Information section on the Special Ed screen in CECAS to allow users to update school and grade info as needed. This is a temporary solution until the PowerSchool to CECAS integration is complete. Users should expect to see this change in CECAS by the end of this week.
11/12/2013 - Schedule for December 2013 Periodic Child Count
The submission schedule is as follows:
|Initial Submission from all LEAs and all Charter Schools||12/2/2013 through 12/6/2013|
|Deadline for Certification Status||12/13/2013|
EC Directors must check over their child count, prior to submission, for errors such as duplicate records, incorrect age, grade, setting and disability. All of this information is available to daily users on the Periodic Count Export Student List in CECAS. Please remember that when certifying the Child Count, the EC Director is assuring that all data submitted is accurate. If any one other than the EC Director certifies the count, a count verification form must be submitted. This form can be found on the Documents tab of http://www.nccecas.org/downloads/downloads.html.
LEAs submitting their child count to CECAS as 3rd party users need to ensure their .xml file contains all required items including, AIG and LEP. Incomplete .xml files will be deleted. For assistance with building an accurate complete .xml file, review the Third-Party Integration Supplement v1.7.
