Core Data and MOSIS – Frequently Asked Questions

I have a student who ended SY 2014-15 as a drop-out. We made her a no-show for 2015-16 with a transfer in from drop-out and transfer out to Illinois on the first day of school. She then transferred back from Illinois to our district after the count date. Do we report her and if so, how, or do we change our June 2014-15 report?


The student should be a Stopout:Exit in the June file. On the first day of school in the 2015-16 school year, she would have been a Stopout:Entry and then an immediate transfer out of state with zero in the attendance.  When she transferred back she would be a transfer from out of state.
