Have a status of “Pending” and have met requirements per the Graduation Requirements Met Indicator on the CPS Grad Status Screen At YEP (6/30/12) SIM will automatically Retain those students who have either been manually set to “Retained” by the school or remain at “Pending” and have not met requirements per the Graduation Requirements Met Indicator Impact on Schools & Students Schools can identify which seniors are not on track to graduate & prioritize interventions while retaining the ability to make the decision on senior promotion or retention.
