||[RIDE] - last opportunity to update student cohort data
||Dr. Ken Gu - SEA
|Last week we asked the districts and schools for a final review of the cohort graduation and dropout rates -
While most districts completed the review/update and signed off the cohort data for final analysis and calculations of cohort graduation and dropout rates. A number of districts discovered additional data problems after seeing the cohort rates. A couple of others simply missed the initial deadlines for review and updates.
To allow for these late updates, RIDE has re-opened the application for another week till March 10th. This is the LAST opportunity for review and updates, the cohort data will become final after March 10th, the cohort rates will be calculated based on the final data and published in this year's Information Works!
Last but not the least, we want to stress the importance of understanding and following the instructions -
Please DO NOT work on or allow anyone to work on the data unless you and your staff have read and understood the instructions!
