New EMIS Coordinator Training
The Ohio Department of Education will be hosting a full day (8:15 am to 4:00 pm) New EMIS Coordinator Training for any EMIS Coordinators with 3 or fewer years of experience. This training builds on that provided in August and is geared towards end of year EMIS reporting. Note that the August training is not a requirement to participate in this session.
Two different dates will be offered: Monday, April 1, 2019, and Tuesday, April 9, 2019. Interested participants will be able to select their date preference at the time of registration, as long as space is available. Register for only one session. The two sessions are the same and there is not enough space for people to attend both. If you end up closed out of one session, we will place you in the other session if space allows.

Training registration is now available in the STARS application. Space is limited and prior registration is required.
All registrants are initially placed on a waitlist. This is to ensure that there is enough seating available and to allow new coordinators priority registration. You will receive an email notification of your placement on the waitlist. If you do not receive such a notification, then you have not completed the registration process. Be sure you have clicked the final confirmation button. You will also be notified via email when you are removed from the waitlist informing you of whether your registration has been confirmed or cancelled.
The registration deadline for April 1 is Wednesday, March 27, 2019, at 5:00 pm. The registration deadline for April 9 is April 1, 2019, at 5:00 pm.
To register, participants must have a SAFE Account and must complete the STARS User Profile. Search for keyword “EMIS” within the STARS application to locate the training. For additional information on using STARS, please click here.
