  • Districts are not following the formatting guidelines from the data dictionary

What if my district has its own data collection system

What if my district has its own data collection system?

  • All districts reporting suspension, expulsion and truancy data need to submit using the EED workbooks in order to satisfy the reporting requirements.

  • EED will work with users to seek reasonable remedies for transferability of data between systems (i.e. PowerSchool)

  • Data needs to be checked thoroughly before submitting. Inaccurate submissions will be returned.
