EMIS Newsflash – June 26, 2018


SDC Now Open
The SDC is now open for review of many of the reports related to the 2018 Report Card data.
SDC Release Notes
SDC release notes are posted in a separate SDC Release Notes document on ODE’s website here. 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 25, 2018
  • Several attendance reports are now available for review. Please note that these reports do not factor in FTE so they cannot be used to calculate district or school attendance rates or the chronic absenteeism rate. For more information about the Chronic Absenteeism measure calculation, please see the technical documentation.
  • District and School Gap Closing reports are now available. Note that there are display issues for the long-term goal and long-term gap closing percent columns in the ELA and Math grid reports.  Students taking a standard assessment of the Ohio Graduation Test are getting included in the ELA and Mathematics student count columns of the ELA and Math grid reports.  Note that English Learner (EL) Progress and Value-Added data are not factored in yet.
