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.

The PtG Report is available for all grade
levels. Every student is assigned a risk score based attendance, behavior,
course performance, and demographics. The report uses live data, meaning the
risk score changes anytime there is a change in any indicator. The PtG Report
has two output options, PDF and CSV. The PDF version uses only current year
data. The CSV version uses current and prior year data (be sure to only run the
CSV 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 (EW)

The EW Tool uses statistical modeling to
measure a student’s dropout risk based on students who previously dropped out
from the same school. Early Warning is currently only available for grades
9-12. Middle and elementary grades will be incorporated in a later release.
Every student is assigned a GRAD (Graduation-Related Analytic Data) Score based
on a multitude of changing data points such as attendance, behavior, grades,
enrollment history, demographics, test scores, grades, guardian involvement,
household demographics, school type, and more. Due to the use of data mining,
Early Warning improves over time. A visual dashboard allows users to view the
entire school and see where each individual student score is in relation to
other students in that school. Within Early Warning, users can filter in IC,
use adhoc groups in IC, and create a watch list of students. Reports can be run
anytime and by multiple users.
