The Department of Education has extended the due date for the graduation and dropout report to January 19, 2018. The updated NEO module is ready and districts can begin entering data on December 20, 2017.
All public, charter, and 60% publicly funded districts (even those districts without schools) will gain access to the graduation module in NEO on December 20, 2017 and will have access to complete the graduation and dropout report through January 19, 2018.
Please note that along with the “attending district” reporting requirements there are now “responsible district” reporting requirements as well. This is because there are new federal reporting requirements that prompted a change to the Maine DOE’s Graduation and Dropout report. Because of this change, there will be multiple districts that are required to submit these reports for the first time. If your district has never completed this report, be sure to check DC & R to see if it is now required.
Instructions and assistance for completing this report:
- The reports can be accessed through DC & R or through NEO directly.
- Login issues: If you can log in to NEO but do not see the graduation tab or if you find that you cannot login; you will need a NEO access request form to be filled out and then signed by the superintendent. Send completed forms to the MEDMS help desk.
- If you need assistance with the graduation reports or have questions you may email Travis Wood, or call 624-6742; or email Leda Cunningham, or call 624-6816.
