PRIORITY NOTICE: EPS Oct 1 Enrollment/Special Ed (EF-S-05) Reporting Certification due by November 22

The Maine Department of Education is asking all districts for verification and certification of the EPS Oct 1 Enrollment/Special Ed (EF-S-05) Report to be completed by Wednesday, November 22, 2017.

At this time, all issues within the Synergy student data information system, and in the NEO Student Reports module have been resolved. We acknowledge the implementation process has caused significant delays in reporting and much frustration. However, as many of you are aware, the timeline for calculating the EPS Subsidy using this data is limited by statute. The Department is asking districts to verify and certify their data within this time frame to help ensure the legislative deadline is reached.

Districts can access their report within NEO Student Reports, October EPS Student Count – and we ask that all your data is reviewed, verified, corrected and certified by end of day on Wednesday, November, 22, 2017.

We thank school districts and their staff for their patience as we have worked through the implementation of the Synergy student data information system. Should you have any further questions or concerns contact the Maine DOE Helpdesk at 624-6896 or at
