OEDS Information

Updating OEDS Contact Information

 

There are several systems within the Department that upload contact information directly from the Ohio Educational Directory System (OEDS). Therefore, it is important that your contact information in OEDS remains current at all times. This will help ensure the appropriate person in your organization receives all communication from the Department. For help with assigning roles in OEDS, view guidance here or contact the Data Custodian for your organization type.

Economically Disadvantage Survey

The Economically Disadvantaged Entity:  Self-Report Survey

 

At the end of the fiscal year, each city, local, exempted village or joint vocational school district, community school, and STEM school must submit a report to the Ohio Department of Education describing the one or more initiatives on which the district or school spent its Economically Disadvantaged funds during that fiscal year. The report is required by Ohio law (Ohio Revised Code 3317.25).

The Economically Disadvantaged Entity: Self-Report Survey serves as a data tool to collect this information. Please find the survey within the Compliance System in SAFE. The survey will open July 2 and close Sept. 30.

If you have questions about the survey, contact schoolfinance@education.ohio.gov.
