Reminder: Data appeal for 2019 calendar, staff, course and remaining assessment data open through Aug. 22


Superintendents can appeal 2019 calendar, staff, course, Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT), Ohio English Language Proficiency Assessment (OELPA), alternate and other accountability assessment data submitted to EMIS through Aug. 22. These data will affect many measures on the 2019 Ohio School Report Cards and the amount of a district’s state funding. This is the only opportunity to appeal this data.
A superintendent who finds inaccurate data should submit an appeal by the Aug. 22 deadline using the appropriate appeal form:

  • 2019 Data Appeal for Final Calendar;
  • 2019 Data Appeal for Final Staff Course;
  • 2019 Data Appeal for OGT;
  • 2019 Data Appeal for Alternate;
  • 2019 Data Appeal for OELPA; or
  • 2019 Data Appeal for Other Accountability Assessments. 
The district superintendent, EMIS coordinator and superintendent designee all can access and fill out the data appeal forms. However, the forms are not submitted to the Department officially until the superintendent approves the appeal.
The Ohio Department of Education’s Office of Data Quality encourages districts to submit data appeals before the Aug. 22 deadline. Districts that have their appeals submitted and approved early will have more time to resubmit corrected data.
Again, this is the only opportunity to appeal this data. A district’s data will not be subject to appeal during the 2019 funding data appeals. Districts should use all funding and report card-related reports available to them to review and assess the accuracy of their data before the deadline. The funding data appeals will give districts the opportunity to appeal cross-district data, such as community school funding flags and overlapping enrollment.
