During school year (SY) 2012-2013, the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) continued its efforts to improve the validity and reliability of data reporting. BIE data collections are dependent on school level entry (self-reporting) into the Native American Student Information System (NASIS) or into the BIE's Academic Report (formerly the BIEs Annual Report) from the schools. In addition, data is gathered and analyzed through the Special Education Integrated Monitoring Process (SEIMP) conducted annually. Through onsite activities and webinars, schools have increased their level of understanding of data requirements and analyses. The BIE aligns reporting requirements with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The BIE oversees a total of 173 elementary and secondary schools, located on 64 reservations in 23 states. Of these, 58 are BIE-operated and 115 are Tribally-operated under BIE grants or contracts. The BIE provides funds to all schools; however tribal groups have been granted or contracted to operate the tribally controlled schools. Both category of schools are treated the same relative to program management, monitoring, and support. The BIE included stakeholder involvement in the development of the APR when members of the BIE Advisory Board for Exceptional Children participated in a conference call on January 17, 2014 and provided input on the data to be reported and the collection process. They asked for and received clarification on specific indicators and provided suggestions for revisions which have been incorporated.
