The Enrollment Gap Report shows the names of the students that left your school in the 2009-2010 school year, have not been enrolled in a CCSD location for at least a year, and are now enrolled in another location. Please review this report prior to preparing the Additional Names list and forward any files to the current school.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need to keep the hard copies of the standardized test result reports such as ITBS, EOCT, and GHSGT?

    • Hard copies should not be kept in the files if there is a results sticker placed on the permanent folder or placed on the transcript as a separate entry. If you are a high school preparing the folder for retention, you will need to look at all grade levels to purge the files.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do we need to keep copies of all report cards?

    • The State retention schedule states that the permanent file is the “Official record of the individual student for his/her period of enrollment at a school”. The elementary and middle school report cards should be included, as well as the high school transcript. If there is a single report that shows grades for the entire year, that is all that is required.
