Inquiry Process

Accountability Data Inquiry Period: October 5 - 18

**The last day to open a data inquiry is October 18, 2021.**

Please note that this deadline is to open (not complete) an inquiry and any ongoing inquiries opened prior to this date will be reviewed and processed prior to October 29, 2021.

If changes from a data inquiry are substantiated, OEA will manually correct the student-level data and update the report cards accordingly. Consistent with past inquiry periods, no data corrections will alter the value-added growth outcomes as these calculations are produced outside of DPI and cannot be altered. Additionally, no data corrections will alter what is reported in the WISEdash Public Portal as this is certified and locked data.

Federal Accountability (ESSA & IDEA) Report Inquiries

The ESSA Accountability Reports and IDEA LEA Determinations are part of the federal systems of school and district identification that are separate from state school and district report cards. Though these systems of identification are distinct, there is overlap in the data sources and the data inquiry period from October 5-18 applies to both of these accountability systems. Any changes that may result from a data inquiry will carry forward to related ESSA Accountability Reports and IDEA LEA Determinations. There is no separate inquiry period for ESSA Accountability Reports and IDEA LEA Determinations.
