Early Warning/Persistence to Graduation Report

Published: 4/12/2017 11:40 AM

​The Kentucky Board of Education envisions that all students will graduate ready for college and/or careers. To support schools in meeting graduation and CCR goals, the Kentucky Department of Education has developed the Persistence to Graduation Tool and has also recently worked with Infinite Campus to introduce an Early Warning System, which is a data mining tool built within Infinite Campus.

Save the Date for the 2017 Persistence to Graduation Summit

KDE has a limited number of scholarships available to waive the registration cost to attend the 2017 Persistence to Graduation Summit, which will be held June 14-15 in Lexington.
SB 97 has provided an opportunity for districts across the state to support more students in earning a high school diploma. In recognition of the fact that additional education options may be needed to re-engage former dropouts and prevent students from leaving school without a diploma, KDE is hosting the 2017 Persistence to Graduation Summit June 14-15 at the Lexington Convention Center. All sessions will feature Kentucky schools and strategies that have been successful in (re)engaging students in a path to graduation. Sessions will be highly interactive and will connect to one or more of the following strands: Student Re-engagement and Transition Strategies, Alternative Programming, Community Partnerships, or School Climate and Culture. 
Registration fee waivers are limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. To request a registration fee waiver please go to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/S6LDCRM
You will receive a confirmation if your registration waiver is approved. We look forward to seeing you at the summit!

Using Early Warning versus Persistence to Graduation Report

Persistence to Graduation Report

PATH: KY State Reporting | KDE Reports | Persistence to Graduation
  • Middle and elementary grades will be incorporated in the Early Warning System at a later date. In the meantime, the Persistence to Graduation Report can still be used for these grades.
  • Assigns every student a risk value score based on selected research-based indicators
  • Has two output options - PDF and CSV
  • PDF version only uses current year data
  • CSV version uses current and prior year data (be sure to only run outside of school hours to avoid system performance issues)
  • Since the CSV report can be lengthy and time-consuming to generate, we suggest that schools and districts run it at the beginning and end of the school year only. You may run the PDF version at any time.
Early Warning System
PATH: Student Information | Counseling | Early Warning
  • Uses statistical modeling to measure a student’s dropout risk
  • First iteration will be grades 09-12; lower grades will be incorporated in a later release
  • Maximizes historic predictive accuracy
  • Learns from much more data in order to identify more risk factors
  • Improves over time
  • Uses risk profiles that differ per district, school, grade level, and more
