EMIS Newsflash – September 9, 2014


SDC Now Available
The Secure Data Center (SDC) is now open and your 2013-2014 Report Card data is available for review.  The SDC will remain open until noon, Wednesday, Sept. 10.  At that time, the department will disable access to the Data Center and the Report Card to prepare for the public release of data on Friday, Sept. 12 at 11:00 am.  
The Ohio Department of Education recognizes that inadvertent data reporting errors can occur during the course of the year-end data submission period.  Given the potential impact of these errors on the educational opportunities available to Ohio’s students, districts do have an opportunity to appeal to the department.  The department will correct substantive reporting errors after the release of the 2013-2014 Report Cards.  You will receive more details regarding the 2014 Data Appeals process following the release of the Report Cards.
