New ID&R Office Guidance

Guidance regarding the 2014/2015 COEs and the new 2015/2016 forms:
  • If a child/youth is recruited in June or July, recruiters should use the COE as it is with the stamped number beginning with 1415.
  • If a child/youth is recruited in August, recruiters should use the 2015/2016 COE (forms are scheduled to be delivered to the districts by July 31st).
  • The only time when a recruiter should be crossing out the stamped number and entering 1516 is when it is past August 1st and the new COEs have not arrived.
