Summer Withdrawal

Wanting to stay compliant with Arizona State. How do I do a summer withdrawal? I know how to "transfer student out" but what date should I be choosing?

 

Do I choose the first date when our school is suppose to start?

 

Do I choose a date in July? Our old system (school master) use to automatically choose a summer withdraw date for us and it was in July. Was unsure if this was a state recommendation or a system recommendation.

Hi @cruth,

 

Thank you for your question in PowerSchool Community!

 

To assist you further with the query you are having on choosing dates for Summar withdrawal, we recommend reaching out to the Designated Support Contacts within your district who should be able to connect with the state and provide you more information.

Re: Summer Withdrawal

Hi @cruth.,

 

As a former Schoolmaster user, I know the transition you are making. I'm sure you have your answer on this question, so I'm sharing for the sake of sharing. You should use the same day school starts. So, 8/17/2020 (first day of school) entry date should be exited with 8/17/2020 exit date. This will send the summer withdrawal to AzEDS correctly.

 

It's important to note... if the student re-enrolls do not delete the summer withdrawal line like you did in Schoolmaster. According to the below article this will cause integrity issues.

Re: Summer Withdrawal

Additionally, the help icon to State Reporting Help has a document called Enrollment Rules that lists the different type of enrollment transactions and it provides a bit more information about how the system handles each transaction. I found it pretty helpful.

 

They do have a typo under the No Show Withdrawal where they reference summer withdrawals... I think they meant to say 'no show' withdrawals.
