School Report Card Update
2011-12 School Report Card data has been placed on the new NYSED Report Card website at http://data.nysed.gov. This dynamic view of the data allows users to "build" the entire report card or parts of the report based on need. The Fiscal Supplements for the 2012-13 NYS District Report Cards are also available on this site - on the "Districts" tab (upper right section of the page).
2011-12 and prior report cards are still available in pdf format at the old site (https://reportcards.nysed.gov/) and will remain there until all years have been converted to the new site.
More information should be available soon on the release of the 2012-13 New York State School Report Card, which will only be available on the new site.
Please go to http://data.nysed.gov and review the 2011-12 report card to become familiar with the way the new site works in preparation for the release of 2012-13 report card.

Guidance Teacher-Student and Principal Linkage Information
Click here for a memo from Kathleen Moorhead, our Executive Director for Data Systems and Educational Technology. The document provides important information regarding reporting and verifying Teacher-Student Data Linkage (TSDL) information and principal linkages in the Student Information Repository System (SIRS) for the 2013-14 school year.
These data must be reported to the State and verified no later than June 6, 2014. Regional data centers will establish an earlier deadline to allow sufficient time for processing.
Because of the complexity and importance of TSDL information, section 30-2.3 of the Rules of the Board of Regents requires that teachers be involved in data verification efforts through roster verification reports. In order to make this process more manageable, it is highly recommended that data be reviewed and verified throughout the school year, rather than immediately prior to the verification deadline.
