Child Outcomes Summary (COS) Exit Scores Refresher Webinar

The Child Outcomes Summary (COS) data collection process is a mandatory process that LEAs must follow for all students receiving IEP services in a preschool special education program.  COS Entry & Exit Scores must be captured in the DC CATS online database for each student.  As many students will be exiting preschool/pre-K within the next few months, this webinar serves as a refresher of the requirements for gathering and inputting COS Exit Scores into DC CATS within the 60 day exit window.  

This webinar will review the COS data collection process, including:

  • Important timelines and deadlines for COS Entry & Exit scores
  • The 3 functional outcome areas
  • The 7-point rating scale
  • Appropriate assessment data
  • Discuss important information about the COS Exit Scores process
  • Review the COS data entry process for the DC CATS online database
