• Corrections to early attendance data

    All principals | Deadline: April 21

    Thanks to the efforts of school-based staff, City Schools had a record low number of data-entry errors in the early attendance data submitted to the Maryland State Department for calculating attendance rates posted on Maryland Report Card.

    As the next step in this process, principals should work with registrars, support staff, and guidance counselors to resolve errors identified by MSDE based on inconsistencies between City Schools’ and other districts’ data. Starting April 13, network staff will send a list of issues to schools. To resolve them, please ensure staff members follow precisely the instructions in the “Issue” column of these reports.

    Help guides to support data cleansing are available on TSS under “Data Cleansing Help” on the left-hand navigation bar. For questions, email Daniel Heller in the Achievement and Accountability Office.
