Established by law in 1989, the Education Management Information System (EMIS) provides the standards for reporting data to the Ohio Department of Education (ODE).  EMIS is the statewide data collection system for Ohio’s primary and secondary education. There are four major functions of EMIS:
      ·         State and Federal Reporting

·         Funding and Distribution of Payments

·         Academic Accountability System

·         Generates Statewide and District Reports 

The EMIS Supervisor oversees the data that is collected in the Student Information System called DASL/Progress Book. The data collected is mandated by ODE through the EMIS guide.  That data is reviewed and maintained for corrections relating to errors and compliancy as required.  The EMIS Supervisor will work with various departments such as the Data Department, the Testing Department, the Curriculum Department, the Student Services Department, the Special Education Department and the Treasurers department to ensure the information being reported to the state is accurate and is completed in a timely manner.  Timelines for reporting data to ODE are defined as reporting periods.  There are four major functions required to report the data to ODE during the required reporting periods:

      ·         Data Collection and Extraction

·         Data Submission

·         Data Verification

·         Data Correction

ODE collects, analyzes, and reports data to a variety of audiences, such as policymakers, educators, administrators, and the general public via EMIS.  At the end of each reporting period, accountability data is posted to the ODE’s Secure Data Center for analysis by various school district personnel.
