06-19-2023 End of the Year 2023 WDE684 Data Collection Review for Accountability

The end-of-year WDE684 WINDS Data Collection is the official collection of student-level demographic, enrollment, section, special education, attendance and membership information.

The end-of-year WDE684 collection window closes on June 28, 2023. This collection is essential for Wyoming School Accountability determinations per W.S. 21-2-204, and determines which students in grades 3 through 10 have been enrolled at each school for a full academic year. Data is also used to compute which students will be considered full academic year students for inclusion on the grade 9 credit readiness indicator for the high school accountability model and the grade 9, 10 and 11 credit readiness indicator for the alternative school accountability model. Additionally, this collection is used for computing the graduation rate for the following school year’s accountability determinations and the annual daily membership used in school funding. 

Each district must verify the accuracy of the information in its WDE684 collection. In particular, enrollment records must accurately reflect the student’s enrollment status on April 24, 2023, and at the end of the school year. It is also critical that the exit codes for the four-year on-time graduation cohort are accurate. All overlapping enrollments must be addressed by July 7, 2023. The information included in the end-of-year WDE684 will be considered final on July 12, 2023, and used for accountability determinations.
