Federal Data Collection Forms

The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) collects special education data which must be submitted annually to the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), U.S. Department of Education. This page displays the information of all the federally required data that will be collected during the 2015-16 school year. Each collection has a separate set of instructions, data collection forms, and due dates. All school districts are required to submit these data reports.

For those data reports requiring Excel templates, you must first download the template and save it to your computer before filling in any information. Open each template with Excel, fill in the required data, and then attach the document and email to specialeddata@k12.wa.us for submission. You cannot submit via the internet.
