Note for Districts still using the Early Childhood Outcomes Conversion Chart:

The Early Childhood Outcomes Center offers COSF Calculators to assist you in getting from the COSF Ratings to the OSEP reporting categories. Instruction and tutorials are provided. This link will direct you to the information and the calculators.

The Preschool Network continues to be available to support you and your staff in understanding the early childhood outcomes process and completing the Child Outcome Summary Form (COSF). Please call us if you need any assistance in these areas. We will be sending out information shortly on our next scheduled event.

For any information on reporting, please contact the Special Education Bureau.
