Error 6480

  • Short Text: Required field is missing, 'Exit Type'.
  • Long Text: Student has an exit date, but no Exit Type was submitted. Modify the Exit Type or remove exit date, if appropriate.

  • Business Rule Impact:

  • Calculation--

    Exit Date and Exit Type should always exist together. 
  • Logic-- This rule is not run for Possible Full-Term Dropout (FTD) records.
  • How to Fix: If the student left your school, enter an Exit Type to describe why the student left. If the student did not exit your school, clear the exit date field.

  • Example: Sarah attended school for the 2015-16 school year until her family moved away May 1, 2016. District Deb entered May 1 in Sarah's record as her exit date but did not enter an exit type. Now Deb is receiving an error that Sarah needs an exit type. Deb needs to enter an exit type, such as TC, to clear the error.
