At this time (February 1st) we're waiting on the data transfer project to conclude before making the 2016 Progress Report available. The report will be submitted through the 3.1 site and the Certification Board has not yet set a due date. As soon as it is available, Austin staff will post instructions to the 3.1 landing page and cross post to Facebook.
