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.
Infinite Campus Beginning of Year Training PowerPoint explains both tools described on this page.

only uses current year data
- CSV version

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.
