Medical Waiver Requests Due Online May 27, 2016
Medical Emergency waiver applications now can be submitted through the new FORMS application within the SAFE account system. This waiver can be submitted for a student who was unable to complete one or more state assessments due to a significant medical emergency. Superintendents, superintendent designees, principals, test coordinators and Education Management Information System (EMIS) coordinators have access to the application and should follow the prompts under the Report Card waiver heading. Applications for the 2016 waiver are due May 27. Districts will receive notification that the waiver was approved or denied in early June.
 
EMIS Supplementary Graduation Rate Data Forms Due June 10, 2016
EMIS Supplementary Graduation Rate Data applications now can be submitted through the new FORMS application within the SAFE account system. This waiver can be submitted for situations in which the student (or parents) reported doing one thing and then actually ended up doing something else (ex. parents initially reporting they would transfer their child to another Ohio public school, but actually transferred the child to an out-of-state school) and because of the withdrawal code, the student is counting as a non-graduate for either the Class of 2014 (5-year rate) or Class of 2015 (4-year rate). As part of the new waiver form, administrators will answer questions about the original withdrawal reason and provide the correct code that should have been reported. Superintendents, superintendent designees, principals, and Education Management Information System (EMIS) coordinators have access to the application and should follow the prompts under the Report Card waiver heading. Applications for the 2016 waiver are due June 10. Please note, adjustments for coding errors and other record keeping mistakes cannot be corrected using this form. A separate EMIS data appeals process exists to correct EMIS reporting errors.
