Data Review SDRR and SRC
Timeline for Reporting • Schools and districts will have opportunity to review student data for accountability and demographics before public reporting. • All dates are tentative. • Planned release to schools and districts in late September-early October; public release in mid-October
Prioritizing Your Data Review • School and districts may review all available student information. OAA encourages focus on these priorities. • Step 1 Accountability (Priority One) • Confirm your 100 day students that will contribute to your district or school accountability. • Indicate any non-100 day students that should be removed from your accountability. • Step 2 Demographics (Priority Two) • Check free-reduced lunch and students with disability status (IEP), since these have potential to change over time. • Confirm ethnicity and race categories.
