New Webinar: The EF-S-05 Part II Special Education Staff Certification Report

To assist those who are responsible for the important task of reporting Special Education Staff data to the Maine Department of Education, the DOE Data Team will be holding a webinar on Thursday March 12th, from 10am to 11am.

The EF-S-05 Part II Special Education Staff Certification report must be verified and certified by the Special Education Director in the Maine DOE’s NEO System. The EF-S-05 Part II Special Education Staff Certification report is used to verify the full-time equivalency (FTE) and qualification status of special education teachers, paraprofessionals (educational technicians), and related services personnel who were employed or contracted to provide special education services to students with disabilities ages 3 through 20 as of December 1, 2019.

This webinar will be an open session for the DOE and the districts to discuss the EF-S-05 Part II Special Education Staff Certification report. We will review frequently asked questions and common data issues found during previous reporting periods.  This is also an opportunity for districts to ask any questions, provide comments, and voice concerns regarding the Special Education Staff Certification process.

The Special Education Staff Certification Report (EF-S-05 Part II) Opens on March 1st, 2020; Deadline is April 15th, 2020.
