  • Long Text:

    When a student with disability turns 10, the disability SDD is no longer valid. SDD is applicable only for students ages 3 through 9. If the student turns 10 and is continuing to receive Special Education services, end the SDD record one day before the student's 10th birthday and create a new record that reflects the student's primary disability other than SDD. If the student is no longer eligible for Special Education, end the SDD record one day before the student's 10th birthday. No subsequent records are expected or required.

  • Business

    Logic: Throw when student is 9 on the Spec education Effective Begin Date AND student is 10 on the Effective End Date (AND Effective End Date is in the past) AND Disability (Reporting) is SDD) OR (Throw when student is 9 on the spec education Effective Begin Date AND student age is 10 on the current Date AND the current date is = Effective End Date AND Disability (Reporting) is SDD

  • How to Fix: Check that the student in question is indeed age 10 and also still receiving special education services. Either way, you will need to enter the end date for the sSEPA that had the student’s prior disability (SDD); the end date should be the day before the student turned 10. If the student stopped qualifying as disabled, enter an end date for the student’s last date of the special education program association the day before turning 10. More likely the case is the student simply needs an updated record from the disability code change when turning 10, as SDD is not an acceptable code once reaching age 10. If the student still has an active disability and special education need, add an end date to the prior sSEPA with the last date the child was nine. Start a new sSEPA on the student’s tenth birthday. Because you cannot use the SDD code once the student turns 10, check the active IEP for the new disability, ensuring the primary disability reported on the record is no longer SDD.


  • Example: Ellie, a special education student, just turned 10 on Feb. 26 of this school year. Her disability from age three to nine had been listed as significantly developmentally delayed (SDD), but now District Deb notices an error on Ellie’s record that her SDD record needs an end date. Deb looks into this and sees Ellie did indeed turn 10 and can no longer have SDD submitted as her reported disability. Deb checks the most recent IEP for an updated evaluation and sees Ellie's new primary disability is listed as Intellectual Disability (ID, formerly CD). Deb puts an end date for the SDD sSEPA record and updates Ellie’s record with a new sSEPA that lists the ID code to clear the error.
