RE:                 CODING EARLY GRADUATES

Date:               June 2009

 

If a student completes all graduation requirements early, the district is allowed to graduate the student early and collect aid through the end of the student’s senior year, even though the student is no longer attending school.

 

 

 

Eligible Early Graduates:

 

Any seniors who complete the credits necessary to graduate before the end of their 12th  year of school are eligible.

 

NOT ELIGIBLE to be claimed as early graduates are students who:

 

  1. Participated at any time in a Learning Year program, such as an ALC.  These students have already generated extra aid
  2. Graduate mid year in their 13th or 14th year of school, not including kindergarten.

 

PROCEDURE

 

1.                  On the day that student completes the graduation requirements, withdraw the student with a leave code of 99.

2.                  Re-enroll the student the next school day with an enter code of 24, and then drop the student on the last day of school using a leave code of 08.

3.                  Please e mail a list of students who are early grads to Marie Yang

 

Example:

A student who finished graduation requirements at the end of first semester would have the following Enrollment records:

 

Start/End Date                          Start Code                               Leave Code

9/2/08                                           00

1/23/09                                                                                            99

1/26/09                                         24                                                  

6/9/09                                                                                              08

RE:                 GRADUATION SCHOOL

 

Date:               June 2009

 

 

 

The graduation school that prints on the transcript comes from the last school of enrollment.  The ability to change what the transcript prints as a graduation school is now available.  A new enrollment no longer needs to be created for a student’s transcript to reflect the desired graduation school.

 

To accomplish this, at the end of the school year, or at the end of summer session, counselors should notify the ALC of the “graduation” school.  Then the ALC will graduate the student on the last day and use the square brackets in the “end comments” field to indicate the graduation school.

 

Two things are necessary to accomplish this:

 

1.      Graduate the student in the last enrollment record with an “end status” grade code of 08.

 

Modify the “end comments” field in the last enrollment record by typing the school desired on the transcript inside squire brackets, [XXX].  (XXX represents the school number)

 

 

 

Optional:  Additional comments are allowed, outside the square brackets.

 

 

 

(Call the Helpline, 603-4357 Option #2 for clarification or assistance if transcripts do not print out as desired)
