The District to District Student Transfers and Transitions project was created to address a variety of problems. Student mobility rates are increasing in Colorado. Mobile students are more likely to fall behind academically and have higher dropout rates. Districts often do not receive sufficient information to appropriately support students, which increases the likelihood of academic failure.
This project collected information and resources related to the processes of enrollment, class placement, withdrawal, and transcript development for students. It was developed in response to requests from school districts for support for secondary students with mobility issues. These webpages provide resources for school and district personnel to use to fully support students through school transitions.
With these transition resources, CDE hopes to minimize the academic impact of student mobility and enable pilot schools to easily transfer relevant transcript-related data required to ensure students’ needs are met, including course placement, when they enroll.
