PD Reporting In SIRS

What is SIRS Special Education Reporting

Pupils with Disabilities - What is PD SIRS Reporting?
  • PD data is the special education data that is contained in a student's IEP (Individualized Education Program).  Districts are required by NYS to report specific data to fulfill both NYSED and federal reporting requirements and is used to provide a comprehensive view of the state's performance in various sectors at specific points in time.

  • Most special education data is reported through the Student Information Repository System (SIRS) and published in the PD Data System in the form of verification reports (VR).  

  • There are two distinct reporting and certification periods in a year that require the movement of data through SIRS:
    See the pages to the left or click on the links below for more information on each of these collection periods
  • Certification of the special education data contained in the VR reports occurs in January, August, and September.  The data is certified by the Special Education Director or SEDDAS entitled user.
