The Forum Guide to Exit Codes provides best practice information for tracking data about when students transferred, completed high school, dropped out, or otherwise exited an education agency. This resource defines exit codes and reviews their use in an education agency; provides an updated, voluntary, common taxonomy for exit codes; discusses best practices and methods for addressing specific challenges in exit codes data collection; features case studies that highlight different education agencies' approaches to and experiences with exit coding; and updates the information included in the 2006 publication Accounting for Every Student: A Taxonomy for Standard Student Exit Codes.
