2017/2018 graduation data report due 6/08; webinar training available for new collection process

The Maine Department of Education (Department) has modified the data collection process for graduation reporting which will impact the process for collecting the 2017-2018 graduation data. The graduation data is due for submission in the Maine DOE’s NEO System on June 8, 2018, and needs be certified by June 15, 2018.

The new process has been designed to give districts that operate high schools a procedure to edit the first three years of their cohort data for the 2017/2018 graduation cohort.

The new process is now open for reporting. There will be two scheduled webinar trainings on Monday May 14, 2018 to assist data coordinators and others in completing this report:

Please note: both training sessions will be recorded and available to view at your convenience, at a later date.
