Working to Get Accurate Data

  • This year we transitioned to a new data system that gives a unique ID to every high school student. Now this ID will follow students throughout their school years.

  • This will help make it easier to ensure the data are accurate.

  • School districts are required to keep documentation on every student who transfers to another district. Otherwise that student must be counted as a dropout.

  • During the next year, we will be monitoring reported data to ensure that correct documentation is available and help districts improve as needed.

  • We will publish the findings.
