Chartered Nonpublic Schools Need to update OEDS-R information by April 19

4/1/2013

A link to an online survey regarding the Intent to Participate in the Ohio Achievement Assessments (OAA) and Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT) in 2013-2014 will be sent to chartered nonpublic school principals via email this spring. Because the distribution list for the survey’s message will be extracted from the Ohio Educational Directory System-Redesign (OEDS-R), it is essential that e-mail addresses and other school information for principals are listed correctly. Chartered nonpublic school administrators should work with their OEDS-R administrators to verify and update the principal and school information in this system by April 19 to ensure they receive this important ODE communication. All chartered nonpublic schools are encouraged to respond to the online survey by mid-June. Due to budget concerns, ODE will not send any hard-copy reminders. Reminder: All chartered nonpublic schools with EdChoice, Cleveland Scholarship and Jon Peterson Scholarship students must assess these students with the Ohio assessments and MUST complete the online survey emailed in the spring. If you do not know the name of your OEDS-R administrator, login into your SAFE account, or create an account. You will see a link titled “Show my current OEDSR roles/access” in the top box at right. Clicking that link will take you to the page where the name is noted.
