Integrity was modified for FY 2013 to preclude Joint Technical Education Districts (JTEDs) from reporting a student as having graduated from a JTED. A JTED cannot report a student’s year-end status using code “G” as this causes the graduation rate information that ADE reports to NCES (U.S. Department of Education EDFacts submissions) to be inaccurate.
However, in reviewing the year-end codes, there was no existing year-end code that applied to JTED students. To resolve this issue, ADE’s Research and Evaluation Division has modified the description of year-end code “C” to include JTED completers. The complete description of the code can be found on Pages 6-7 of the Graduation Rate Technical Manual.
