TEAMS Report Window Extended to Midnight March 14, 2014Monday, February 24, 2014, 9:45 am
Although the reporting window was scheduled to close at midnight on Friday, February 21, 2014, a number of factors created the need to extend the deadline for schools.
As you know, the new TEAMS application was not completed in time to allow the collection process to begin in the fall. Even though the application collects the same information as the old Annual Data Collection, it is in a new format resulting in a steep learning curve on the part of the users and the OPI staff. Finally, although extensive testing was done on the application before release, the real time execution of the application revealed some unanticipated errors in its development. A large number of these errors have been corrected and the remaining identified errors are being addressed as quickly as time allows.
During this three-week extension, the TEAMS staff will continue to respond as quickly as possible to requests for assistance. In addition, the staff will create direct assistance opportunities for schools that are experiencing the greatest difficulty in completing the report.
