2018 CTE Concentrators Appeal
From Monday, Jan. 29 through Friday, Feb 23, superintendents of traditional districts, community schools and joint vocational school districts required to report career-technical education follow-up data in EMIS may review the students included in their 2018 March (D) lists. Your list of March (D) students is now available in the March (D) Follow-up Collection, which was released today. If the list is incorrect due to misreporting of concentrator data in EMIS, see instructions here to submit an appeal by the deadline. Please use the form in SAFE titled 2018 Data Appeal for CTE March Concentrators.

This is the only opportunity to update the students on your March (D) list. Districts will be able to appeal placement and assessment data during the March (D) appeal process after March (D) closes. However, there will be no changes to the list of students after the Feb. 23 deadline.

The superintendent, EMIS coordinator and superintendent designee have access to complete the appeal form. However, it is not officially submitted to the department until the superintendent completes the approval process.

Please note all appeal forms in SAFE must include corrected student level data using the 2018 Concentrators Appeal Student Data template in the Upload Data section. To ensure your appeal is reviewed by the Department, make sure the spreadsheet is complete and accurate.
