Identify presumptive English learners in EMIS


The Ohio Department of Education has revised statewide Reset and Restart Education information in accordance with recent guidance provided by the U.S. Department of Education. All students identified as English learners—whether identified by the standard or presumptive procedure—should be coded appropriately using the state Education Management Information System (EMIS). This will ensure continuity of funding and eligibility for other English-learner-specific provisions. New procedural guidance for schools and districts to code presumptively identified English learner students in EMIS can be found in this document.
