Subject: Report Card Message from the State Superintendent
This is to update you on activities related to the Report
Cards. We have been working closely with Deloitte Consulting
to deliver the data to schools and districts this week.
If you read the weekly message you know that this is the
first year the process is completely electronic. It is also
one of the major components of our data warehouse initiative
that includes the e-Grant Management System and Student Identifiers.
The process this year is being managed by Deloitte which is
building the format and plugging in the data.
Staff in Data Assessment have been working late hours and
over the weekend to ensure accuracy of this years report.
I deeply appreciate the hard work put in by everyone, in particular,
Andy Metcalf, Richard Yong, Connie Wise, Shuwan Chiu, Warren
Summers, Lynne Curry and Clay Slagle who came in over the
weekend to keep the verification process going.
At this point, the State Report card reflecting statewide
results, is close to completion and is expected to be available
to us this afternoon and may be released to media as early
as tomorrow (Tuesday). The District and School Report Cards
still have some verifications that need to be addressed and
are expected to be accessible online to districts as early
Please join me in thanking Data Assessment for their diligence.
