ESSA changes for supporting homeless students in 2016-2017 school year

Homelessness happens in every Ohio community. Your students who are in this situation may need added support to be successful this school year. Under the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), your district must designate a person to be the liaison between the student, family and your school. There are other important changes for the 2016-2017 school year that you must have in place by Oct. 1 in early childhood education, assigning credit, transportation and college and career readiness.

Please update EVAAS school and district administrators by Sept. 10

We are working with vendor SAS to ensure that the appropriate district and school administrators who will manage local Education Value-Added Assessment System educator accounts have access this coming school year. We ask that superintendents verify by Sept. 10 that names and email addresses are current in the Ohio Educational Directory System (OEDS) for the individuals assigned to two roles: EVAAS District Administrator or EVAAS School Administrator. If not, they may make new role assignments. This handout will assist with role assignments.

Update OEDS now for smooth flow of information and funding

Please remember that district Ohio Educational Directory System (OEDS) administrators should update role assignments and information in this system on an ongoing basis and particularly now as the school year begins.
 
We recently launched a new interface for OEDS. The new system is set as the current default and eventually will replace the former interface. For a limited time, you still will have access to the former system, but we encourage you to begin performing your tasks through the new interface.
