On January 26th, Governor Romney released the preliminary Chapter 70 numbers. These numbers are based on your October 1 SIMS data. If, upon review of your data, you determine that there is an error with the October 1 SIMS data, please contact Roger Hatch ( or 781-338-6527) by February 11th to request an amendment to the data. You will have until February 18th to make any approved changes.

To assist you in your review of the SIMS data, we have re-run all of the summary reports and posted them to the security portal, in the SIMS October Data dropbox. For more information on SIMS and the summary reports, please see

If you have questions regarding the SIMS data or the summary reports, please contact the DOE Field Technologist assigned to your district/charter school.

Thank you.
