Jane A. Russo, Superintendent
Cathie Olsky, Ed.D., Deputy Superintendent
• 2010 implementation of Aeries Student Information System
• We now have the ability to identify every student entering and
exiting the school district
• As a result, we did the following:
– Met with all of the high school Principals and Assistant
Principals (AP) to address the goal of graduation
– Shared the roles and responsibilities of the AP and Registrar
– Provided professional development on proper State coding
– Required each high school to provide evidence for all of their
exits and graduates
– District office staff visited each school to verify their process
– Reviewed all evidence at the district office

The Focus of
Today’s Presentation
• The way SAUSD monitors students’ entries and exits
• The number of high school students who entered and
exited SAUSD from 2007-2010
• The categories and explanation for all exits:
graduates, non-graduates, and dropouts
• The analysis SAUSD conducts in comparison to
CDE’s graduation calculations

The Three Types of Exits
Graduate
Non-Graduate
Dropout
Definition:
Students who completed
all graduation
requirements and earned
a high school diploma or
earned a GED or CHSPE
Definition:
Students who leave high
school to attend another high
school, alternative program,
or leave for a specific reason.
Definition:
Students who were enrolled in
grades 7-12 at some time during
the school year AND left prior to
completing the year
OR
Successfully completed the
previous school year, but did not
begin attending the next grade
level
AND
No record of enrollment as of
CBEDS Information Day
(October)
Example:
No show, credit deficient, nonCAHSEE passer
Example:
Student earned 220
credits, passed CAHSEE
and completed all other
graduation requirements
Example:
Student who passed away,
exited school for medical
issues, enrolled in a program
leading to a diploma, earned
a special education certificate
of achievement, transferred
to another school

Non-graduate is NOT the
same as a dropout
