CASE Rubric for Elementary School Dropout Prevention

  • Criteria for dropout prevention strategies were developed with the help of Jose Villaseñor (District Section 504 Coordinator); Rick Nolly (Director of Campus Operations and Attendance Initiatives PK-12); and, Stephanie Cook (Director of Guidance, Counseling, and College Readiness).  The criteria for elementary campuses are the same as those for 21st century workforce.  It is the belief of the local committee that at the elementary level, 21st century strategies and dropout strategies are very similar.  Information on the creation of a safe and welcoming environment for students was collected from the student climate survey administered in spring 2016.  The 5-year graduation rate came from the 2015 TAPR report, and credit recovery information came from John Mynatt.  Specific criteria for each rating can be seen in the tables below.  When converting ratings for the CASE system, a score of Exemplary was converted to an A, a score of Recognized was converted to a B, and an acceptable score was converted to a C.  Should overall scores fall below a C grade, they were rated on a case by case basis to determine grade (e.g., either a D or an F).
