Consolidated School Report opens Nov. 1

10/2/2023

Traditional public school districts, including joint vocational school districts, annually must report a specified set of data to the Ohio Department of Education through the Consolidated School Report. Community schools and nonpublic schools do not report this data.

The data include training on the use of physical restraint and seclusion; training on harassment, intimidation or bullying; training on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and an automated external defibrillator (AED); compliance with nutritional standards; screening for hearing, vision, speech and communications, health or medical problems, and developmental disorders; and intradistrict and interdistrict open enrollment policy.

The purpose of the report is to consolidate reporting by collecting the information at one time and in one tool. Districts are required to report data from the 2022-2023 school year through a report survey in the Data Collection application within the OH|ID portal. The reporting window will be open Nov. 1-30, 2023.

If the school district fails to complete the report or reports noncompliance by answering “no” to any question in the report or by failing to upload the nutrition report, the district must provide to its board of education, within 30 days, a written explanation for why each item was not compliant and a written plan of action for accurately and efficiently addressing the problem.

Those identified in the Ohio Educational Directory System (OEDS) as superintendent or superintendent designee for the district have access to complete the report. Using the Chrome internet browser to complete the report is recommended.
