The purpose of the End of Year (EOY) is to summarize the annual educational history for students throughout the school year.
The data from this collection is used to determine 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.
File layouts provide guidance on the valid coding and definitions for each data element being collected.
All school submissions contacts should review relevant training prior to starting the data collection. The New This Year training is optional but encouraged for returning data contacts.
Data Validation Resources
Data validation resources should be utilized prior to submitting initial files to CSI and throughout the collection to ensure data is comprehensive and accurate. Regularly using the data validation resources will reduce the number of updates needed at the end of the collection after receiving the Summary Report.
