More information provided on Dropout Graduation Summary Report

If you missed the Sept. 29 Dropout Graduation Summary Report (DGSR) question and answer session with DGSR and KIDS staff members, it can be found at Dropout Graduation Summary Report (DGSR) (ksde.org). There is a link to the slide deck presented and a checklist of items to be considered when looking at the data for the DGSR.  

A recording of the meeting is available. 

It is crucial that each building logs into the KSDE Authenticated Applications portal and opens the DGSR Application to verify and validate the prior year’s graduation and dropout data. 

Here are some frequently asked questions and answers: 

What is the window to complete the DGSR validation? 

  • Oct. 2 -Oct. 31 

What is the DGSR? 

  • DGSR stands for “Dropout Graduation Summary Report.” It is the application KSDE uses to build out the annual reports on dropouts and graduation. 

Who needs to log in and sign off on the data? 

Every building in the district (including virtual schools) should have at least one person who logs in to validate the data. 

Which grades are used to calculate the data? 

  • Grades ninth through 12th are used in the graduation calculations. Grades seventh through 12th are used in dropout calculations. 

Do elementary and middle schools need to do this as well? 

  • Yes. All buildings should log in to validate their individual data. Even if the building’s data is not being used in the calculations, the application is still able to provide insight into the student populations.
