The Cohort Graduation and NCES Dropout rates have been refreshed, and now include all changes made by the December 13 deadline. You can preview these rates by logging into the Achievement Data Insight application and clicking on the “All” tab to view closed validations. Note that these rates are embargoed until the public release date, January 30. Please do not share them until that time.
ODE has also received additional information on students who earned GEDs during the 2012-13 school year, and has incorporated this information into the rates that are currently available. This information was not available until after the December 13 deadline for changes to the graduation and dropout rates. Because of this, ODE will accept appeals related to this set of GED data until Friday, January 17. If you see a student who is identified as having earned a GED, and you know that this student did not earn a GED, please email Isabella Jacoby (firstname.lastname@example.org ) with the student's SSID by 5 PM on January 17. No appeals related to other
issues will be accepted at this time.
