Accountability Report Card Update

I have been in contact with the Department of Public Instruction's Office of Educational Accountability (OEA) and have been informed that a "glitch" in their system has caused them to upload the report card for the High School with inaccurate information even though it is currently under review.  I was told by individuals from the OEA that the report for the high school would be listed as "not rated" as I previously posted.  Please see the relevant e-mail below:

Dear District Administrator:

This is to inform you that we have received your inquiry related to possible errors in the data underlying the report card for one or more schools in your district. We are in the process of resolving your inquiry and in the meantime, the rating for the school(s) in question will be “not rated.” We will work with you to resolve the issues as quickly as possible and generate new report cards if we are able to confirm and correct data errors.

If you have any questions or comments please contact Laura Pinsonneault.

In addition, I have received the following correspondence from Laura Pinsonneault, the direct of the OEA indicating that the DPI is working on replacing the existing report card with one that reads "not rated" as previously mentioned:

Dear Craig,

Thank you for writing.  As I expressed earlier, we have identified the technical issue that resulted in report cards with rating categories being posted to the web, instead of the ‘under review’ report cards.  It takes about 15 minutes for the new versions to re-load and we are working on that right now.  Again, I do appreciate you drawing this to our attention and apologize for any confusion this may have caused.  As Phil said, we should have the situation resolved shortly.

Unfortunately, based on my last conversation with the OEA, it looks as though the "technical issue" will not be resolved until as late as 5:00 pm this evening.

I will provide updates as they become available.
