Beginning Monday, June 13 through Wednesday, June 22, superintendents may conduct their required review of 2015 EMIS data that will affect their districts’ Graduation Rate and Prepared for Success components of the 2016 Ohio School Report Cards. Superintendents are to signify whether these data are accurate or not as they complete the “Fiscal Year 2016 EMIS Report Card Data Review for Graduate” form, which is within the Forms application in SAFE. If a superintendent has inaccurate data, he or she should submit an appeal as described here.
The 2016 Ohio School Report Cards for the first time will contain letter grades for the six report card components: Achievement, Gap Closing, K-3 Literacy, Progress, Graduation Rate and Prepared for Success. Most measures within components also will receive letter grades. An Overview Fact Sheet about the report cards and components is now online.
The department has loaded the principal composites as default scores into the electronic Teacher and Principal Evaluation System (eTPES). Superintendent may access through their SAFE accounts individualized Principal Value-Added Composite Reports to assist them in confirming the accuracy of those principal composite scores and completing principal and assistant principal evaluations this year. The reports include composite scores based on value-added measures from the building where the principals and assistant principals served in these roles during the 2014-2015 school year.
