Warning 6491


  • Short Text: 'High School Completion' Exit Type was selected, but student is under 16 years of age.
  • Long Text: Student is under 16 on the exit date and has been reported as a high school completer. Modify the Exit Type, if appropriate.

  • Business Rule Impact:

  • Calculation-- Age as of Exit Date is < 16 AND Exit Type = HSC.
  • Logic-- (1) This rule uses the age as of the exit date. (2) This rule is not run for Possible Full-Term Dropout (FTD) records.
  • How to Fix: Check both the student’s actual age and if the student really did complete high school. It's very rare for a student to graduate at age 16. Likely, you will need to alter the Exit Type value for the 16 year-old to the correct reason the student left. If, instead, the student’s age is incorrect, update the age value. Acknowledge the warning once complete.
  • Example: District Deb spots a warning on Joe Stimpson's record that he is under 16 years old but has an exit type of completing high school. This would be very unlikely to graduate that young, so Deb looks into this. She discovers that Joe did not graduate, as he is only 15. She verifies that he is returning to the same school next year and then enters an exit type of known to be continuing and acknowledges the warning.
