SDC Now Open
The SDC is now open for review of FY15 Local Report Card data.
Composite Staff Evaluation Data for 2014-2015 will include district and individual building percentages of Teacher and Principal Evaluation ratings from the Ohio Electronic Teacher and Principal Evaluation System (eTPES).  Summative data will be reported in five categories – Accomplished, Skilled, Developing, Ineffective or Not Completed. These data are available for review in the Secure Data Center District and School Details Reports within the Local Report Card folder.  Individual staff data is not reported.
The SDC will close again at 8:00 am on Tuesday, March 22, 2016, and will not reopen until sometime after the March 24, 2016 Report Card release.
SDC Release Notes
Known Issues:
Corrected Issues:
Acceleration Data – Because of the overlap in publishing of the 2015 report card and 2016 data collection, those students identified as accelerated for the first time in 2016 were included in the Performance Index calculations released in February. The adjustment changed results in the Performance Index, Indicators Met or Gifted Indicator for a limited number of districts on their 2015 report cards.  The issue has been corrected and the updated data is currently displayed in the SDC. 
Value-Added data has been updated to reflect appeals.
