Forum Guide to Exit Codes

I am pleased to announce the publication of a document I worked on for the U.S. Department of Education called Forum Guide to Exit Codes.

I worked on it seemingly forever. Months and months. Much of the document was edited by yours truly; but I was only a bit player in the process of creating this document. It was a collaborative effort by many people, including a variety of experts in education and education documentation. I assisted in the process as a writer, editor, and consultant.

(And in case you don’t believe me, I’m named on page v.)

U.S. schools and districts keep track of what happens to each enrolled student when he/she exits the institution. This is usually accomplished by entering an exit code into a data system. For example, one exit code might indicate that a student graduated; another exit code might indicate that a student left the institution to be homeschooled; another exit code might indicate that a student transferred to a school in another state; and so on. That’s what this document is about.

Unlike my published sonnets, this document does not provide information on my love and sex life.

Apologies for any disappointment this may cause.

If the U.S. Department of Education ever publishes a juicy document about my love and sex life, I will notify you about it in a timely manner.

You can count on this blog to be your #1 source for information of that sort.

In the meantime, I invite you to peruse this newly released document about exit codes.
