Any agency closing or ending the school year before June 30, 2012, must complete its data through the last day of classes and submit all end-of-year deliverables on or before August 15, 2012. Failure to submit any 2011–12 deliverables will affect current year payments and future funding.
Adult schools with high school diploma programs can claim students “Earned High School Diplomas” only when they have (a) successfully completed all coursework required by the state and local districts and (b) passed all sections of the California High School Exit Examination.
Agencies must submit the following data and accountability requirements (See Attachment 3 [http://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/ae/fg/eoy11recommend.asp] for additional recommendations and troubleshooting tips):
