To comply with the information and reporting requirements for adequate yearly progress, report cards, and performance indicators of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), the Department of Education is conducting the End-of-Year Student Record Collection (EOY SRC) for the 2007-2008 school year.

For the second year, the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Completer Demographics data will also be included on the EOY SRC.
