The student end of year snapshot collects student enrollment information throughout the school year. This information includes student demographic identifiers, codes indicating the way students enroll and withdrawal from a district, and services students received. This information is used to calculate dropout, graduation, and completion rates. In addition to this, the student end of year snapshot collects high school student's post-secondary and AP course information. Additional information about the rates generated by this collection is provided in the rate and report information section below.
The 2018-19 Student End of Year collection will officially open on Tuesday, May 7th 2019. The collection is currently open as a "soft open" for districts that would like to start taking EOY snapshots.

Cross LEA process
The Cross LEA process validates if a student previously enrolled in a district have been recovered by another Colorado School district or completed a High School Equivalency Diploma test after exiting the prior district. During this phase most SE700 level warnings are elevated to errors and require district attention.
