EMIS Newsflash – August 31, 2018


Data Appeal Window Open for Retention Data
From Tuesday, Sept. 4, through Thursday, Sept. 6, superintendents and EMIS coordinators should review relevant Third Grade Reading Guarantee reports in the Secure Data Center. If results are incorrect due to inaccurately reported retention data in EMIS, the superintendent should submit an appeal by the Sept. 6 deadline as described here, using the “Data Appeal for Retention” form within the Forms application in SAFE.
The Department will be recollecting updated retention data from districts with approved appeals through 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 7. The Department encourages districts to submit data appeals before the Sept. 6 deadline. Districts that submit appeals early will have more time to resubmit corrected data.
The superintendent, EMIS coordinator and superintendent designee can access and complete the data appeal form. The Department does not consider the form to be officially submitted, however, until the superintendent or designee approves it in SAFE.
For answers to questions about data appeals, please contact the Office of Data Quality.
