Guidance--Access to the Survey

ITP surveys are submitted via a multi-purpose online system titled State Education Department (SED) Monitoring.  A link to access SED Monitoring becomes visible once you are logged in to the NYSED business portal.

The superintendent will have automatic access to the survey via the following link: 

S/he will need to delegate access to the person or persons completing the survey through SEDDAS, the SED Delegated Account System, which manages access to web-based applications through the State Education Department’s Business Portal.

Before the superintendent delegates access to the survey, s/he needs to ensure that the delegated individual has SEDDAS permissions to enter the portal.  The superintendent will then need to use his/her SEDDAS permissions to grant users Data Entry and Data View to the ITP survey under "Ed Tech" in SEDMON.  The district’s Delegated/Entitlement Administrator (DA/EA) may also provide this access.

Granting these permissions will NOT provide access to any other information in the portal. The superintendent is the only individual that has submit/certify rights and will therefore need to submit and certify the survey before it can be submitted to NYSED for review.

Note: Should NYSED not approve the survey submission, it will be unsubmitted back to the district.  If it is unsubmitted to the district, the superintendent will be required to re-certify/submit a revised ITP to NYSED.

Here is the link to the SEDDAS mini guide for entitling users to SED Monitoring:
