Verification and Certification

Data used for reporting purposes are not final until the reporting deadlines, which are typically after the end of the school year, toward the end of August or into September of the following school year. Prior to these deadlines, the Department makes preliminary data available in verification reports, which enable districts and schools to review and change their data until the final reporting deadline. Districts and schools must then certify that the data they see in these verification reports are accurate as of those deadlines.
