Prepared for Success Reports Ready to Review in the “Forms” Application
On the 2016 Ohio School Report Cards, schools and districts will receive a letter grade for the first time on the Prepared for Success Component, which measures how well the school or district is doing in preparing its students for college or a career. To be sure their letter grades are accurate and complete, districts should verify 2015 data submitted through the Educational Management Information System (EMIS) for student graduate records by June 3.
To assist districts with verification, the Ohio Department of Education has uploaded individual district reports with SAFE that show what each district reported for each student who is included in the calculation. Reviewing the report is the only way districts can check their Prepared for Success data. Because some districts are unable to view or open these files in the Collaboration Center where originally posted, the department moved the files to the FORMS application within SAFE.
EMIS coordinators have access both to the Collaboration Center and the FORMS application. The reports posted there will be updated each Monday, so any changes districts make to their EMIS data will appear in their following week's Collaboration Center reports.
