The color of the underline under each screen name lets you know whether the information on that screen is complete. A red underline means that you still need to enter information; a yellow underline indicates that there is a warning and the information on that screen should be verified; and a green underline indicates that the information is complete.

School Information

First, navigate to the School Information screen. On this page, you will first be asked whether the school you’re entering data for is closed this school year. If it is, answer Yes, click Save, and proceed to the Graduates screen. Otherwise, enter No and click Save.

Enrollments

On the Enrollments screen, enter the number of male and female students enrolled in your private school in each grade for the current school year.

Note that enrollment information must be entered on a per-district basis. This means that if your private school has multiple buildings that are located in different districts, enter the enrollment only for the buildings in the district you’re entering data for. Enter enrollment for buildings located in other districts separately.

Once you’ve entered the enrollment numbers, click Save and navigate to the Graduates screen.

Graduates

On the Graduates screen, enter the number of male and female students who graduated high school from your private school in the previous school year. Enter 0 if there are no graduates to report.

Once you’ve entered the number of graduates, click Save and continue to the Confirm screen.

Confirm Your Data

On the Confirm screen, you can see if the application has found any issues with the data you’ve submitted. If there are errors or warnings, a page will show either a yellow or red warning icon and indicate what is causing the error. For example, if there is no enrollment submitted, the Enrollment row will show a red warning sign and indicate that there is no enrollment data.
