In last week’s Commissioner’s Update, ESE announced that school and district leaders now have access to final 2013 cohort graduation rate and 2013 annual dropout rate data on the Security Portal. ESE anticipates releasing the data publicly later this month. The data are embargoed until the public release. This data will factor into the 2014 accountability determinations for high schools and for districts.
The update states “As a reminder, the corrections to these data were welcomed during the October SIMS submission and will no longer be accepted. Please remember that cohort graduation rate and annual dropout rate data are strictly embargoed until the Department's public release. If you have questions, please contact Rob Curtin at 781-338-3582.”
