Dropout Prevention School Assessments: Data Review and Data Appeal Windows Open July 10
From July 10-17, superintendents of dropout prevention and recovery community schools can complete required reviews of their 2018 fall and spring assessment reporting in EMIS. The value-added data from these assessments will affect their schools’ Progress measure and overall school rating on the 2018 Ohio School Report Cards.

Superintendents must indicate whether the data are accurate as they complete the “2018 DORP Assessments Data Review” form in the
Forms application in SAFE. A superintendent with inaccurate data should also submit an appeal using the “2018 Data Appeal for DORP Assessments” form. The deadline is July 17.

The superintendent, EMIS coordinator, or superintendent designee can complete both the data review and data appeal forms. The forms are not officially submitted to the Department until the superintendent approves them.

For answers to questions about the data review or appeal, contact the Department’s Office of Data Quality.
