SDER: TEI Reports are Available

Teacher Experience Index (TEI) for Fiscal Year 2014 has been calculated for all school districts with TEI reports being available for each district through this link.  The TEI reports were created from SDER data submitted through March 10, 2014.  Pursuant to A.R.S §15-941(D), if corrections are necessary, the school district shall submit a letter to the Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction and to the Chairman of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, explaining the need for corrections.  Upon receipt of copies of the required letters, a window for the submission of data school district employee data corrections may be opened.  The window may be opened on or after March 15, 2014 and must be closed by April 10, in order for the TEI to be recalculated by April 15th.  Statute prohibits the recalculation of the TEI after April 15th, unless the TEI is overstated.
