EMIS Newsflash – October 24, 2016


Data review and appeal windows for 2016 funding data extended to Oct. 28
State law requires treasurers and superintendents to review funding data from EMIS and SOES/ODDEX and complete the FY2016 EMIS Data Review for Funding Report, which is in the Forms application in SAFE. The FY2016 Funding data review and appeal windows opened on Oct. 3. To allow additional time to review data, the deadline to complete these processes is being extended until Friday, Oct. 28.
Districts that find that they have reported inaccurate data that is impacting their funding should submit an appeal by the Oct. 28 deadline using the Fiscal Year 2016 Data Appeal for Funding form.
The treasurer and superintendent must both approve the Finance Data Review and Finance Data Appeals forms before the Department will consider them official. The treasurer must approve the forms first, and the superintendent or designee completes the process. For more information about the data review dates, timeline, and completion process, click here. For answers to questions about data review or data appeals, contact the Office of Data Quality.
