    In preparation for the public release of the new DC School Report Card in December, OSSE gave LEAs the opportunity to review and update the calculated value for each metric that will be publicly posted. This two-phase process, called Metric Calculation Confirmation, began on Sept. 10 and is ending today, Nov. 1. Heads of School must certify all of their Phase II data by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1. Please note that due to tight deadlines to produce the DC School Report Card as scheduled, OSSE will be unable to grant any extensions.
