Graduation & Drop Out (GAD)
The 2016 Graduation Rate Appeals Window in MSDS will close on September 14, 2016. CEPI will use the data submitted in the 2015-16 General and SRM Collections, as well as data from previous years, to calculate 2016 graduation and dropout rates. Exit status corrections not submitted by 11:59 p.m. on September 14, 2016 can only be changed by your local ISD auditor through an audit finding in the GAD Application.
The 2016 Cyclical Exit Status Audit Window will be open in the GAD application from October 17 through December 1, 2016. Auditable graduation and dropout rates will also be available on October 17 to aid districts and ISD districts during this window. After December 1, no further changes to graduation and dropout rate data are allowed.
