16 Data Ready Reports Reports placed in this folder are identified as important for all district to review for one of the following reasons: 1.General confirmation that data locked in Level 0 was loaded to Level 1. 2.Summary status reports for specific deadlines. 3. Potential exception conditions, which would require research by the district. E.g. Demographic without Enrollment.

Scroll to view the rest of the pages within the report – the remaining pages show detailed student information by district, selected building(s) and grade(s).
