  • The ELA Reporting window has been extended until March 1 for all programs who report their data into EMIS.
  • If your district or program had a small or inconsistent amount of data compared to previous data collections, we suggest running the ELA Learning Progression (LP) report again and resubmitting your data to EMIS. Directions for running the LP Report can be found here.
