Error 6479

  • Short Text: Invalid Exit Type for transfer between districts.


  • Long Text: Your district provided Exit Type 'Transfer to another school covered by WISEdata; known to be continuing.' Exit Type must reflect student status on or before the count date. WISEdata provides evidence of transfer to this school, another school or district, but the enroll date is after the count date as shown in the 'Field Value'. If you believe the enroll date is in error, then contact the new district/agency/school so that this error can be corrected.   


  • Business Rules:

    • Logic--(1)  This rule will not function properly when only choice school are in WISEdata. (2) This rule is not run for Possible Full-Term Dropout (FTD) records.


  • How to Fix: Verify the student’s transfer and exit date by looking at proof of transfer and the student’s enrollment start date at the new school district. Compare the enroll date to the count date; the enroll date can’t be after the count date in the current school year for the exit type you selected. If the student transferred and started at the new school after the count date, then remove the incorrect ‘Transfer to another school…’ value and enter a more appropriate exit type. If the student should’ve started at the new school prior to the count date, maintain the exit type and work with the new district to have them enter a correct enroll date that’s before the count date.


  • Example: Lola’s record displays an error that she has an invalid exit type for her transfer. District Deb digs into the matter and finds that Lola exited her school September 7 and transferred to Sixteen Candles High School. Lola should’ve started there Sept. 8, but the enrollment date shows she didn’t start until Oct. 8, causing Deb’s exit type to be invalid. Deb calls the new district to see when Lola started attending and finds that Lola’s enroll date at Sixteen Candles should’ve been Sept. 8. Deb leaves her exit type, and the new district corrects their enroll date to clear their errors.
