2 School Report Card Application Opens for data entry at 8:00 AM (EST) November 3, 2009 Login: Start checking the accuracy of your data. Enter the narratives and data that schools are responsible for entering. Make sure the KCCT data loaded into the school report card on November 3 rd belongs to your school and the fields are loaded in the correct fields., but do not spend time on the finer points, because the data reflecting the data review process will not be loaded until mid-November.
