The Extended Assessment testing window will close this month on April 27. Districts may continue to enter data through May 19, 2009. Please be aware that the data entry window will definitely close this year on May 19. In previous years, the Oregon Department of Education has responded to appeals beyond this deadline to accommodate a variety of issues. However, given that this year districts have a greater need for the June pre-preliminary AYP results to be as accurate as possible, extensions will not be allowed.
Please notify all staff of this critical information. Districts and schools that are unable to meet this deadline may receive AYP designations that do not reflect their students' actual achievement. For additional questions on Extended Assessment timelines and deadlines, please contact Brad Lenhardt at Brad.Lenhardt@state.or.us .
