The SDC will close on Tuesday, January 12 at 8:00 am in preparation of the January release of the FY15 Local Report Card.  The SDC will not re-open until after the January release of the Report Card, which is scheduled for Thursday, January 14, 2016 at 11:00 am.  We will send an EMIS Newsflash announcing the SDC re-open on Thursday, January 14, 2016; please note that because of the volume of individuals accessing Local Report Card, the SDC may experience some slowness on that day.
SDC Release Notes
Known Issues:
The AP and IB exams used for Accountability in place of the End of Course Exams are not currently being included in the percent proficient calculations for the appropriate standards.
The Gifted ID status is being determined as of the end of the school year; starting with the FY15 report card, the status will be determined as of March 31st.
District and School Achievement – The Indicators percentage and grade are not being displayed. Also, 12th grade subjects are showing as indicators but should not be. 
Students that are accelerated (on a Written Acceleration Plan) and took an End of Course exam in an ELA or Math subject area are not getting the performance bonus in the Performance Index. 
Corrected Issues:
There were several instances where duplicate OGT test records were loaded into the SDC.  While this did not affect the percent proficient for the district, it did inflate the count of students and may have affected the overall performance Index score.
