Lisa - I am not aware of this term - Body of Evidence. Could you or
anyone else explain what that means?

Subject: [wyomingabe] Body of Evidence dropouts

Dear Margaret,
We have (already) had our very first student come in here saying they
dropped out of high school because they did not meet the school
district's "Body of Evidence" (BOE). We also just had a request made by
one of our K12 New Student Orientation partners ask us to track the
number of students who state on their registration under "Reason for
leaving school" the BOE.  Would we want to implement a state effort to
count these kids so that we have information about the relationship
between increased dropout rates (if indeed this happens) and the BOE? I
think it would be very interesting!! Lisa
