The 2017-18 Report Card Narrative Collection opens Thursday, August 9 in the Achievement Data Insight (ADI) application and will remain open through Friday, September 28. A training video can be found on the 2017-18 Video Training page under Report Card Narrative Collection 2017-18. This training covered the guidelines for the new narrative sections included in the redesigned At-A-Glance Report Card as well as the data submission process. The 2017-18 Report Card Narrative Guidance document can be found on the Report Card Narrative Collection webpage.

For questions, please contact your Regional ESD Partner or Elyse Bean at 503-947-5831.


The District Detail Sheets and the Regular Attenders indicator are scheduled to be available next week in the 2017-18 Report Card validation, located in the Achievement Data Insight (ADI) application. ODE apologizes for the delay. For questions, please contact Josh Rew at 503-947-5845.


Data submitters and reviewers: Look for validation email notices for Student Enrollment the week of July 30, 2018. These notices highlight unusual data compared to last year. Whether you get an email notice or not, please review your Limited English Proficiency (LEP) and Ever LEP student numbers as LEP is a new field this year, and the calculation for Ever LEP counts has changed. This validation is based on Third Period Cumulative ADM data. The last day to make edits to Third Period ADM is August 24, 2018. No changes will be allowed after that date. Please contact Robin Stalcup at 503-947-0849 or your Regional ESD Partner if you have further questions.


The Kindergarten Assessment consolidated collections (Approaches to Learning, Early Literacy, and Early Math) are open Thursday, August 9 through Monday, October 29.

A training will be held on August 23, and a repeat of the same training on September 20. This training will cover the data submission process for the Kindergarten Assessment collections. For questions, please contact your Regional ESD Partner or Elyse Bean at 503-947-5831.


Data submitters and reviewers: Look for validation email notices for Class Size the week of August 6, 2018. These notices highlight unusual data compared to last year. Whether you get an email notice or not, please review your data in Achievement Data Insight. This validation is based on the Class Roster collection. The last day to make edits to Class Roster is September 14, 2018. No changes will be allowed after that date.

Please contact Robin Stalcup at 503-947-0849 or your Regional ESD Partner if you have further questions.


The first 2018-19 Data Collection Committee (DCC) meeting is August 16 from 9-11:30 AM at the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Building (4034 Fairview Industrial Dr. SE, Salem, OR 97302) in the Commission Room. The DCC is scheduled to meet monthly via GoToTraining, with in-person meetings occurring in August and February. Sign up to join the GoToTraining. More information is available on the DCC webpage or, if you have specific questions please contact Sandee Hawkins.


The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) is seeking applicants to fill three vacancies on the Accountability Reporting Advisory Committee (ARAC). The ARAC is a committee defined in rule (i.e., OAR 581-002-0090) and provides guidance and recommendations to ODE concerning accountability policies, procedures, and methodologies as well as school and district appeals of accountability data that appear on the school and district report cards. The committee consists of individuals from educational institutions representing diverse communities across the state of Oregon.

The ARAC meets quarterly with three virtual meetings and one in-person meeting; however, the ODE occasionally schedules additional meetings when necessary. The length of the virtual meetings is 2 to 4 hours, while the in-person meetings are typically 6 to 8 hours and occur in Salem in August (travel reimbursement is available).

Interested applicants should have knowledge and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • School and district accountability
  • Public data reporting for a non-technical audience
  • Data collection and validation
  • Interpreting assessment or other accountability data
  • Research, analysis, and program evaluation

The ODE has a strong commitment to equity and cultural diversity; thus, we encourage individuals with diverse cultural perspectives and experiences to apply.

Interested applicants will need to submit all of the following:

  • A brief online questionnaire
  • A resume, curriculum vitae, or bio
  • A signed letter of support from your organization

Applicants can complete this online questionnaire as well as attach their resume, CV, or bio and letter of support. Please submit all application materials no later than Monday, October 1, 2018. If you have any questions or issues completing the online application, please contact Surbhi Singh at 503-947-5905.


The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) will consider appeals regarding accountability data displayed on the 2017-18 school and district report cards. Appeals are due to ODE no later than Thursday, August 16, 2018 at 5 PM. More information about submitting appeals is available on the Report Card Policy webpage.

Reminder: ODE will post the 2017-18 Preliminary Report Card Rating Details and new At-A-Glance reports in the Achievement Data Insight (ADI) application for district preview starting on July 26, 2018.
