2020-21 ORS Training Webinar Canceled (REPEAT)
In 2020-21, summative test data will not be delivered through the Online Reporting System (ORS) for the English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, or Science summative tests. As a result, the annual ORS training webinar will be canceled for 2020-21. Individual Student Reports (ISRs) will still be available for these tests through the ODE application Secure Assessment Reports, as in prior years.
English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA) data will continue to appear in ORS as in previous years. For instructions on retrieving ELPA data from ORS, please consult the ELPA Screener Online Reporting System PowerPoint. While this slide deck focuses on the Screener, preliminary Summative data can also be retrieved from ORS using the same processes.
For help navigating ORS, please contact your Regional ESD Partner.
2020-21 New School Status Requests due May 1, 2021 (REPEAT)
Oregon Department of Education annually provides schools an opportunity to request that the Accountability Detail Sheets (report cards) take into account boundary changes due to modifications to attendance areas, restructuring of schools (e.g., consolidation, separation, etc.), or changes to grade configurations. Schools should use the Boundary Change Calculator for 2020-21 Accountability Reports to request New School status if they experience a significant change in student enrollment between school years.
If you feel that it would be appropriate to request New School status, please visit the Accountability Details webpage under the “Tools” menu to access 2020-21 Boundary Change Calculator and other pertinent information.
Please note, if the Accountability Waiver submitted to the U.S. Department of Education is successful, there will be no accountability determinations made for 2020-21. However, approved New School Status requests will impact future years’ accountability reporting.
See the April 8 A&A Update for more information. For questions, please contact Elyse Bean.
