English Learner Data Submission

CEPI has been advised that when districts receive a new student, they may not know that they are considered an English Learner (EL) student and are receiving errors when trying to report them. We are working to adjust our business rules to best capture the data for EL students whether they are new to a district, exiting the EL program, or re-entering the EL program.  We have temporarily changed those errors to warnings while the adjustments are being worked on. If you received errors during Quality Review pertaining to EL students, please re-run the Quality Review and you will now get warnings instead of errors, allowing you to certify your collection.
