Summer services: Students must be enrolled for the time period they are receiving educational services. This means that students that are receiving extended school year services in district or extended school year services in an out of district placement must have a primary enrollment for that time period in order for the MDOE to have the most accurate enrollment data to determine SAU responsibility for MaineCare Seed.
The Maine DOE is reminding administrators and school board members of the approaching deadline for annual certification to the Maine DOE of employment of Superintendent of Schools.
A school board must meet by December 31 to elect a superintendent if its superintendent’s contract expires in 2019 and then must submit a certification of employment report with all required documentation to the Maine DOE by March.
The instructions and forms and can be found at the Maine Department of Education, Data & Reporting, Helpdesk, Data Reporting Instructions. Please click on Superintendent/Agent Certification Form & Instructions (found at the bottom of the list).
Starting on December 1, the EF-M-39 Report of Adult Education opened for submissions through the NEO Student Data Module. The report is a resident-based aggregate count of students aged 16 to 20 who live within the boundaries of a school administrative unit (SAU), are no longer enrolled in regular education classes, and are taking academic courses through a Maine Adult Education program, but not necessarily through the SAU in which they reside.
School Administrative Units are asked to report the number of students, the number of courses and credits taken.
Who Needs to Report:
All public SAUs, excluding public charter schools, must complete the report, even if there are no pupils to report. Please note that the individual SAU member entities of AOSs and school unions must report separately. SAUs whose students attend a regional Adult Education programs must report the number of resident students who attend the regional Adult Education program.
This is a general reminder that dropout reporting is due on Friday, December 14th. All public schools that contain any grades 7 through 12 are required to complete this report. Please start working on these reports as soon as possible in order to give the DOE and yourselves time to make any corrections/changes to the dropout reports before it is too late. Below you can find a link to the directions.
Please note the following: Once you have finished completing your reports by clicking the ‘Completed’ button on each report, you will need to hit the “Submit to DOE” button in order for us to know your report is ready for approval. Otherwise, it will be seen as not finished.
If there is an error you cannot correct with an edit to the students last exit status, please contact either the helpdesk (email@example.com 207-624-6896) or Trevor Burns (Trevor.R.Burns@maine.gov 207-624-6678) instead of leaving comments on the student. These comments can be missed and won’t be seen unless the report has already been submitted to the DOE, where we will assume all has checked out on your end.
The Maine Department of Education is excited to announce the availability of a new district human resource role in the state’s online educator certification system. The new role in MEIS (Maine Educator Information System) can be requested for district human resource staff by the superintendent.
This new role will provide the user the ability to view the districts certification (violations) report as well as any district employees up for a credential. Prior to granting this role, the staff member will need to create an account for themselves (if they do not already have one) in MEIS.
