Increasing Qualified Personnel to Work in the Field of Special Education


Welcome to the grantee section of the Personnel Development Program Data Collection Center (DCC) Web site. This section of the Web site is designed for grantees that have been awarded grants from the Office of Special Education Programs' (OSEP) Personnel Development Program in 2005 and any year thereafter. This Web site provides answers to Frequently Asked Questions about service obligation regulations/requirements and a portal to DCC’s Data Collection System (DCS), a secure, online database to collect scholar contact and service obligation information for tracking the fulfillment of service obligations.

Grantees must enter in the DCS the name, address, email address, social security number, and service obligation details of each scholar as well as provide any other information that is necessary to carry out the Secretary's functions under section 662 of IDEA. Project Directors are sent an email from DCC with login instructions for accessing the DCS. The grant Project Director must login to DCS and enter information for each scholar funded by a Personnel Development Program grant awarded in 2005 and any year thereafter who has exited/completed a training program (grantees may register one additional staff member for login access to the DCS). A grant profile has been entered for each grant based on information provided from OSEP. Grants are identified by the grant award number. To login to the DCS, please click here.
