SDC Release Notes
Known Issues:
The AP and IB exams used for Accountability in place of the End of Course Exams are not currently being included in the percent proficient calculations for the appropriate standards.
The Gifted ID status is being determined as of the end of the school year; starting with the FY15 report card, the status will be determined as of March 31st.
Corrected Issues:
There were instances of End of Course assessments not being included for STEM schools/STEM districts.  This would have affected the count at both the STEM school/district and the resident district of the student.
There was an issue with the (District and School) Gifted Test Proficiency Level reports that excluded most grade levels below 10th grade from the report.
