EMIS Newsflash – September 3, 2019


FY20 Retention Data Appeal Open through September 5
From Tuesday, Sept. 3, through Thursday, Sept. 5, superintendents and EMIS coordinators should review relevant Third Grade Reading Guarantee reports in the Secure Data Center. If results are incorrect due to inaccurately reported retention data in EMIS, the superintendent should submit an appeal by the Sept. 5 deadline as described here.

The Department will be recollecting updated retention data from districts with approved appeals through 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 6. The Department encourages districts to submit data appeals before the Sept. 5 deadline. Districts that submit appeals early will have more time to resubmit corrected data. 

The superintendent, EMIS coordinator and superintendent designee can access and complete the data appeal form. The Department does not consider the form to be officially submitted, however, until the superintendent or designee approves it in the OH|ID portal (formerly SAFE). 

For more information about the data appeal window, timeline, and completion process for superintendents, visit the EMIS Data Appeals webpage. For questions regarding data appeals, contact the Department's Office of Data Quality.
