SDC Now Open
The SDC is now open for review of many of the reports related to the FY17 Local Report Card data.
Please note that when the SDC closes the evening of Wednesday, June 26, the Department anticipates that it will remain closed through Monday, July 3 as we work to complete some internal data processing updates. Should this schedule change, districts will be notified via EMIS Newsflash.
SDC Release Notes
SDC release notes are posted in a separate SDC Release Notes document on the Department’s website. The website provides a list of SDC reports, a high level description of whether or not each report is ready for district review, and any important additional details about the status of the report, including any known issues associated with the report as of the last date the website is updated. 
SDC Release Notes will also continue to be included in the EMIS Newsflashes that go out when the SDC is open.
SDC Release Notes as of June 26, 2017
In the 2017 Annual Measurable Objective (AMO) calculations, the End of Course Exams are now being correctly included in the prior year’s percent proficient calculations.
In the 2017 District and School K-3 Literacy reports, some districts and schools who should be receiving an “NR” either due to small n-sizes or because less than 5 percent of their kindergarteners were “Not-On-Track” in 2015-2016, are incorrectly receiving an “F.” In addition, those districts and schools with an “F” letter grade are incorrectly receiving zero component points, regardless of the K-3 Literacy percentage.
