Recertification needed in NEO Graduation Module

Please note ALL superintendents of public school districts, school administrators from 60% publicly funded private schools, and charter schools must recertify. 

Maine DOE recently discovered and promptly fixed a technical issue related to the State’s data system for calculating graduation rates. As a result, all superintendents from public school districts, school administrators from 60 percent publicly funded private schools, and public charter schools must reexamine and recertify data in NEO. We ask that this process be completed no later than Friday, Feb. 5.

The Department understands this is a duplication of work and apologizes for the inconvenience, however, recertifying the numbers is crucial to meet federal reporting requirements.

To certify:

  • Please log into NEO, click on “Graduation Reports”
  • From the Graduation menu, select the second option called “District Graduation and Dropout Status Summary”
  • From there, click on the “certify” link in the navigation column. This will bring you to your aggregate graduation data to be certified.

We are confident this issue is resolved going forward and appreciate your cooperation. If you have any questions, contact the MEDMS Helpdesk at 624-6896 or email
