When do industry-based certifications earned by students "count"?
Industry-based certifications are credited to the district and campus from which the student graduates. When a student graduates, the TEA programmers review PEIMS reporting from the previous four years for any IBC reported (from any district in Texas) as being earned to attribute CCMR credit. As such, any IBC reported as earned in middle school would fall out of the four year window. The only exception would be if the student graduated in less than four years.
