Secure Preliminary Report Cards in SAFE

Tuesday, October 4, 2022

Dear District and Choice School Administrators,

This email is to notify you that Secure Preliminary School and District Report Cards for schools and districts are now available in SAFE, the Secure Access File Exchange. As a preliminary and secure report, this information may not be shared with the public.

ALL Report Cards in SAFE are always considered secure - they are not redacted and contain potentially identifiable student data - and should not be shared with local media, parents, or other members of the public.

The public release of final school and district report cards is scheduled for Tuesday, November 15. At that time the public School and District Report Card results will be widely available.

If you haven’t already obtained access to SAFE—and delegated access to the School and District Report Cards in SAFE—please visit the WISEhome information page and follow the steps there. As always, if you have any questions about accessing SAFE, please use the DPI help desk.

To ensure 2021-22 accountability reporting is as accurate as possible, this secure preliminary release initiates an inquiry process. If, upon review of your school or district’s Report Card, you identify a possible data submission error, submit an inquiry.

To aid you in review of your secure and preliminary report card, OEA has created a Secure Release Checklist, available on the Report Card Resources page.

Inquiry forms are due before the end of the day Monday, October 17. By completing the short inquiry form, staff from the Office of Educational Accountability (OEA) can track and respond to all inquiries in a timely manner. This deadline is for submission of forms only; no evidence is due until OEA has an opportunity to contact your district about the inquiry. This year, the inquiry form will also require an “inquiry code” listed on the first page of your secure preliminary report card.

If you have questions or comments, please contact the Office of Educational Accountability.
