Updated FY20 EMIS Data Collection Calendar Posted
The FY20 EMIS Collection Calendar has been adjusted to reflect changes due to the ordered school-building closure and House Bill (HB) 197. Please keep in mind that dates are subject to change.
The following are reflected in the revised EMIS calendar.
  • HB 197 eliminates the requirement to calculate Value Added data on the FY20 Ohio District and School Report Cards. As such, the Department can provide districts with 3 additional weeks to report student data.
  • Spring End of Course and Spring State Assessments Grades 3-8 data will not be collected this school year. The related Collections have been cancelled.
  • The March (D) Follow-up Collection and the Child Outcome Summary Assessment (A) Collection have both been extended by several weeks.
  • The Financial (H) Supplemental Collection has been removed. This is not due to the ordered school-building closure. See FY20 EMIS change 20-91 for more information.
Updates to Data Appeal Webpage
The data appeal webpage will be updated in the next several days with revised dates, where appropriate. The following will be reflected on the revised appeals calendar.
  • A new data appeal window will be added for Fall End of Course State Assessment data. The new appeal will be opening later in April.
  • The data appeal windows for many collections closing in August will be extended by several days.
