General Questions

    Who is responsible for submitting a data appeal form?
    In many cases, only the superintendent is required to approve the appeal.  The only exceptions are the finance appeal (only the treasurer approves) and the funding appeal (both the treasurer and superintendent are required to approve). Check the Data Appeals page for more information about each appeal type.

    When do appeals windows occur?
    Districts and community schools are required to complete the EMIS Data Review and Verification form for EMIS data multiple times each year, including the review of Report Card data, finance data, and funding data.  JVSDs are required to complete the EMIS Data Review and Verification form for CTE Report Card data, finance data, and funding data.  In the EMIS Data Review and Verification form, there is an opportunity to indicate that your district is submitting a related data appeal.  If you indicate you are submitting a related data appeal, you must then separately complete and submit the Data Appeal form.
     
    Additional data appeal opportunities may be scheduled at the discretion of the department. 
     
    For more information about the EMIS Data Review and Verification form, please see the related information on the EMIS webpage.

    What will happen after I submit the appeal application?
    You will be notified by the department as to whether your application is approved.  If approved, your district must work with the Ohio Department of Education to develop an appropriate plan to submit corrected data.

    How should appeals for data reported for my students by other districts be handled?
    If data is misreported by another district on behalf of your student, the reporting district MUST submit the data appeal.  Examples of data reported by districts other than a student’s attending home district could include industry credentials, some assessments and diploma data.
