Improving Systems, Practices and Outcomes

Section 619 Data and Reports

Section 618 Data

Section 618 of IDEA requires states to submit data about children who receive Section 619 preschool services annually to OSEP.

Child Outcomes Data

States report outcomes data for children receiving Section 619 preschool services on their Annual Performance Reports (APRs). National child outcomes data for Section 619 can be found in the annual Part B APR Indicator Analyses reports (see Indicator 7). Highlights from the most recent APR data analyses are also available on the Outcomes Measurement section of our website.

IDEA Part B, Section 619 National Survey

The PDF: IDEA Part B, Section 619 National Survey Summary Report describes the results of a survey conducted with State IDEA Part B Section 619 Coordinators in 2018. Questions were designed in partnership across Section 619 Coordinators, OSEP and ECTA center staff to gather information about state systems and services provided under the Preschool Grants Program (Section 619 of Part B) of IDEA. The purpose of this summary is to provide a national picture of state administration and practices related to serving young children with disabilities in accordance with the IDEA Part B, Section 619 Program to inform and assist State 619 Coordinators and their state and local partners in enhancing the quality of services for preschool children with disabilities and their families, as well as informing national efforts to support preschool special education programs.
