Data Warehouse Facilitates Workshop on HS Graduation Requirements
As district administrators and counselors finalize graduating seniors’ credentials, the CNYRIC’s Data Warehouse (DW) department is prepared to provide support through a dynamic spreadsheet application. In fact, the DW recently hosted a High School Verification workshop to review rules regarding Regents exam diploma requirements including the new pathways to graduation regulations, as well as address high school accountability projections for next year’s New York State School Report Card.

Regents Exam Diploma Requirements
The diploma portion of the workshop consisted of a review of the new and existing regulations regarding earning a high school diploma.  This time included discussion of the new pathways regulations which recently went into effect and impact students scheduled to graduate in June 2015.  A spreadsheet tool was provided to each attending district which listed each of the district’s students who has taken a Regents exam.  The tool identifies which Regents exam diploma requirements each student has met based upon exam performance, the type of diploma each student has currently earned, as well as any advanced, honors or mastery designations he or she has earned.  The tool also allows for easy identification of any students that have not met certain exam requirements, students that qualify for local diplomas, and students that may qualify for a Regents diploma through the appeal of an exam score.  The data coordinators hope this tool will reduce the workload of counselors and help ensure students receive the proper credentials.

High School Accountability
During the High School Accountability portion of the workshop, CNYRIC data coordinators reviewed the current accountability measures and criteria used for predicting the 2014-2015 NYS School Report Card, as well as the SIRS Level 2 High School Accountability reports that need to be verified in districts by August and certified by superintendents this summer. Participants were provided with a review of New York State accountability measures and the AYP calculations, as well as an overview of how the High School Accountability tool can be used to identify students who are not meeting the participation or performance requirements for secondary level assessments and graduation rates.   This part of the half-day workshop concluded with district representatives looking at their data and discussing plans for using it to improve Performance and Participation Rates for ELA and Math Accountability.

If your district was unable to attend the workshop but is interested in securing the spreadsheet tool or learning more about graduation pathways and high school accountability, please contact Lori DeForest at
