Beginning Teacher Training 2013-2014
Transcript of Beginning Teacher Training 2013-2014
Why we are here?
We are here to teach you the basics of the SEIS system.
Policy and procedures may vary from SELPA to SELPA and you will find that SELPA’s often do the same thing in very different ways.
It is important to know and understand your SELPA’s policies, procedures, guidelines, and requirements. Talk to your SELPA about your particular needs.
During SEIS training, if you have questions about forms, policies, and procedures. These need to be answered by your SELPA or DISTRICT representatives.
Things to Know
Let's Log On
Since 2003 SEIS has grown into a team of 90 SELPAs, over 900 school districts, 60,000 teachers and administrators and over 600,000 students across California!
CAlifornia Special Education Management Information System
They are the state entity to which all special education information is reported.
Some people have referred to CASEMIS as the:
CASEMIS involves funding. It is very important (just ask your superintendent!).
This data is so important that you cannot Affirm the IEP in SEIS until this data is complete.
Most of this data is required on a legal IEP.
There are tools in SEIS to help you identify CASEMIS data fields. There are also error checks.
There are two CASEMIS reporting dates: December 1 and June 30.
December 1 is a report of all eligible students at that date.
June 30 is a report of all currently eligible students and all services they received during the previous 12 months,
BUT ALSO ALL STUDENTS WHO:
Have exited during the previous 12 months and all services they received during that time.
Were assessed during the previous 12 months regardless of the outcome of the assessment.
Students who exited your post-secondary program the PREVIOUS fiscal year.
SEIS was created by educators, for educators by CEDR Systems, a part of San Joaquin County Office of Education.
It is an online IEP and data management system which launched in 2003 in the San Joaquin County SELPA
The idea was simple, use shared, centralized data :
To streamline the process of writing IEPs by eliminating the need for excessive repetition.
To make it easier for SELPAs and districts to mange and report accurate information to local, state, and federal reporting agencies.
So Teachers and Admin/Clerical staff benefit from each other’s work instead of being at odds with one another.

Pay attention to news items and other instruction from your SELPA and district during the reporting seasons.
