The purpose of the End of Year (EOY) is to summarize the annual educational history for students throughout the school year.
Beginning in 2020-2021, the collection will track Graduation Guidelines requirements for every high school student.
The data from this collection is used to derive the graduation, completion, dropout, mobility, and stability rates used in school and district-level accountability measures. This information informs policy at the state and federal level and becomes public information that is used in official reports and news articles.
Graduation Guidelines: A previous note on Local Measure (LM) coding wrongly stated that schools must have decided at the beginning of the 20-21 SY if they were planning to use Local Measure coding or new Graduation Guidelines.
- Schools may use both Local Measure coding and Graduation Guideline coding.
- Schools did not need to have decided on Local Measure use at the beginning of the school year and may implement it now.
- What qualifies as Local Measure success is decided at the school level, not by CSI.
- Local Measure coding can only be used on graduating students.
The Local Measure (LM) guideline is being implemented for this year only due to COVID. At the beginning of the school year each CSI school should have decides at the school level whether or not to adopt Graduation Guidelines this year or to revert back to their graduation requirements prior to the planned implementation of Graduation Guidelines this year. If your school opted to revert back to graduation requirements prior to the planned implementation of Graduation Guidelines then you may use the Local Measure code in place of other Graduation Guideline coding. If you are not sure what your school policy is on this matter please contact your school leader or Graduation Guidelines coordinator to find out. This information should also be available in your student/parent handbook.
