End of School Year Checklist for Completing Reports

The following checklist is designed to assist districts with publicly funded students in completing required end of year reports.  The dates listed after each report are when the report is open for entry and due for certification, if required.


The following items are available in the Synergy Student Information System. Please visit http://www.maine.gov/doe/data/helpdesk.html#resources for Synergy codes to be used for the items below.

☐   Update Attendance

  • All students with an enrollment must have attendance entered
  • Please register for the Chronic Absenteeism Webinar on June 12, 2018 at 1:00 for discussions on the data where districts can ask questions and discuss resources available to ensure accurate data. https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4892409320166524419☐   Update Truancy

☐  Special Education – exit any students who have left special education:

☐   Update BehaviorNote: all enrollments exited with an expulsion must have an expulsion incident in the behavior module

  • Special Education will not need to be ended unless the student is exiting the special education program. Special Education services will need to be uploaded each year.

☐  Update/End ALL Enrollments:

  • DOE will NOT be automatically ending enrollments
  • Concurrent enrollment MUST be ended before the primary enrollment can be ended
  • All students will need to be exited on their actual last day of school. This may be verified using “Attending Student Report”
  • June 30 should not be automatically populated for the last day of school.
  • Future exit dates are not permitted in the system.
  • Ending a student’s enrollment will end Economic Status and Truancy – to avoid this, update Truancy records prior to ending enrollments
  • New enrollments will need to be uploaded/entered as well as special education information each school year.
