2012 Accountability Appeals
Beyond the correction of discrepancies, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) has established a process for appealing a district's or school's accountability determination. An appeal is a formal request to change an accountability determination that was based on factually correct data. Appeals must be filed by the superintendent or designee via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since being posted on September 6, 2012, the accountability data have been subjected to extensive external and internal review. As such, ESE has set Friday, October 5, 2012 as the deadline for submitting 2012 accountability appeals.
