15 - 16 School-wide Goals
Merit Learning Center will maintain a graduation rate of 90% for the eligible seniors who complete our program with a high school diploma.
Criteria: Merit Learning Center will use the below stated criteria to determine the assigned outcome code:
2 - Earning all credits indicated on the ILP or earning at least 10 credits per year or a monthly equivalent of 1.1 credits based upon enrollment
3 – Earning at least an average of .8 credit per month based upon enrollment
4 – Earning an average of less than .8 credit per month based upon enrollment
Senior Update - Part I
An eligible senior needs more than one and a half time the monthly average (1.1) of credits to earn an outcome of 2.
- Example # 1: A senior enrolled on 8/6/2016 needing to earn 20 credits is NOT an eligible senior.
- Example # 2: A senior enrolled on 8/6/2016 needing 12 credits IS an eligible senior.
There are a few factors that also exclude students from meeting the eligible senior requirements.
- Transfer (NOT including transfers to home school)
- Less than 15 days of attendance (alternative education exclusion)
Senior Update - Part II

11 Pending Exit
5 Outcome Code 2 (see School-wide Goal Criteria)

22 Dropped Out
We have 28 active seniors. I have placed a copy of their names in your mailbox. We are encouraging all seniors to complete their requirements by 5/20/2016; however, they have until 5/27/2016 to complete their credits and participate in commencement ceremonies.
