EMIS Newsflash – July 23, 2019


FY19 Child Outcome Summary Assessment (A) Collection, v2
Please refer to the Release Notes for details regarding this newly posted collection request.
Attendance Rate and Chronic Absenteeism in the SDC
The attendance rate and chronic absenteeism rate reports in the Secure Data Center are incorrect. They are using an incorrect set of students. A file showing the correct set of students and the correct chronic absenteeism rate was placed in the data collector yesterday afternoon. Districts should use the file in the data collector to determine if an EMIS data appeal is needed for this element.
Reminder: Data Appeal For 2019 Student and Assessment Data Open Through July 26
Superintendents can appeal 2019 student and assessment data submitted to EMIS, including assessment data for grades 3-8 and end-of-course tests, through Friday, July 26. These data will affect many measures on the 2018 Ohio School Report Cards and the amount of a district’s state funding. This is the only opportunity to appeal this data.
A superintendent who finds inaccurate data should submit an appeal by the July 26 deadline using the appropriate appeal form:
  • 2019 Data Appeal for Spring State Grades 3-8 Assessments
  • 2019 Data Appeal for Spring End-of-Course Assessments
  • 2019 Data Appeal for Fall Third Grade Reading
  • 2019 Data Appeal for Student Data
The district superintendent, EMIS coordinator and superintendent designee all can access and fill out the data appeal forms. However, the forms are not submitted to the Department officially until the superintendent signifies approval.
The Ohio Department of Education’s Office of Data Quality encourages districts to submit data appeals before the July 26 deadline. Districts that have their appeals submitted and approved early will have more time to resubmit corrected data.
Again, this is the only opportunity to appeal 2019 student data. A district’s student data will not be subject to appeal during the 2019 funding data appeals. Districts should use all funding and report card-related reports available to them to review and assess the accuracy of their student data before the deadline. The funding data appeals will give districts the opportunity to appeal cross-district data, such as community school funding flags and overlapping enrollment.

For more information about the data appeal window, timeline and completion process for superintendents, visit the EMIS Data Appeals webpage. For questions regarding data appeals, contact the Department's Office of Data Quality.
