New FY15 OTELA Assessment (A) Collection Request
A new FY15 OTELA Assessment (A) Collection Request has been released.  Please refer to the FY15 OTELLA Assessment Collection Release Notes for details regarding the collection.
FY16 HQT Report
We have implemented an FY2016 EMIS Change that requires a teacher to be validly certified in EMIS to be HQT, regardless of the HQT status reported by the LEA.  With the change implemented, there may be instances where the HQT status of a course changes without a change in HQT reporting by the district.  If the certification issue is resolved prior to the close of the collection request, the HQT status will update to reflect what is being reported. 
FY16 Federal Child Count Reports
Reminder:  The last day to submit data that will be used for the FY16 Federal Child Count report is March 25, 2016.  ODE will use data submitted through March 25 for the FY16 Federal Child Count report; any data submitted after March 25 will not be used for the Federal Child Count report.
