Must Do's & To Do's

May Must Do's

College Access Team Members
  • Draft year 5 action plan with Regional Facilitator 
  • Input services/activities into SCRIBE and provide service summary and receipt documentation to Business Managers

Data Stewards
  • Add students who enroll during the months of May/June. Note if they are GEAR UP eligible.
  • ALL students will have an exit code at the end of the year. New exit codes to select from are listed on the Exit Student Template. This should save work at the beginning of the next school year.
  • Enter participation in SCRIBE for all services that took place during the months of May and June as described in your GEAR UP Action Plan. Reference the roster that’s attached to the service.  Enter Service Summary Form into SCRIBE.  
  • Ensure that services planned for the summer are listed in SCRIBE.
  • Complete the data for the 2018 Graduates. Use the Graduates Template. There is a helpful tip in the Graduates Instructions document on how you might want to collect data from the school counselor. It would expedite your import process.
  • End of course grades entered into SCRIBE. This includes all courses that fall under math, ELA, science, AP, early college, and dual credit.  Those are the only courses we track. 
  • Unexcused Absences for the Year (10+). On our federal report, we’re required to report the aggregate number of students by grade level who have 10 or more unexcused absences for the year.
