Newsblast - October 2018 Print

MDE reporting window extended to 10/8

The following article appeared in the most recent MDE Communications:

As of June 27, 2018, Section 1278a (2) of the Revised School Code requires the following:
(c) Not later than September 1, 2018, and not later than September 1 of each subsequent school year, a school district or public school academy shall report to the department both of the following, in a form and manner prescribed by the department:
(i) The number of pupils who partially or fully fulfilled 1 credit in a language other than English by completing a department-approved formal career and technical education program or curriculum under this subsection in the immediately preceding school year.
(ii) The number of pupils who partially or fully fulfilled 1 credit in a language other than English by completing visual or performing arts instruction that is in addition to the requirements under subsection (1)(a)(iv) under this subsection in the immediately preceding school year.

Due to a low initial response to the survey, the survey has been re-opened until October 8, 2018.

All districts are required to respond to the survey, including those with no students. Those districts with no students to report should complete the survey by entering zeros.

The 2018 report will be fulfilled by your participation in answering a brief online survey by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZFZHTW6.

If you have questions, please contact Denise Teague, Career and Technical Education Program Consultant, at 517-335-0381 or teagued@michigan.gov.

GenNET Instructors being Reported to REP

CEPI has granted Genesee ISD permission to report all virtual teachers (for courses offered on the GenNET Portal that include a Michigan-certified teacher) in Genesee ISD’s REP.  Any schools enrolling students in those online courses via the GenNET Portal will not need to report the virtual teachers in their district REP, and school staff with a login to GenNET Online Learning will have access to a downloadable report with data needed for TSDL reporting (including teacher names and PICs). 

CEPI staff realize there may be data quality alerts during the TSDL submission because some teacher data will not be in their district’s REP but provided assurance this will not have a negative impact on data submission.  If you would like more information or have questions, please contact GenNET Online Learning staff (810-591-4401 or via email atonlinelearning@geneseeisd.org).

New EL Exit Reporting Document Available

To aid districts in better understanding the EL exit reporting process, a NEW document, EL Exit Reporting Guidelines (https://www.michigan.gov/documents/mde/English_Learner_EL_Exit_Reporting_Guidelines_624626_7.pdf), has been developed by MDE and CEPI and posted on the Title III web page (www. mi.gov/mde-titleiii). This document was developed to provide a clearer set of directions for staff around the process of reporting EL exits. If districts have additional feedback on ways to make this document clearer, please send it to mde-oeaa@michigan.gov.
