Graduation Requirements Records (GRR), formerly SERVS Student, is a secure MDE website where districts document decisions to award Pass status to a student for a GRAD based on conditions other than having passed the relevant diploma test.

There are four codes that are used to record a district's decision:
Pass at Individual Rate (Code: 0001): This code is entered when the IEP or 504 plan team sets an individual passing score on a GRAD, MCA-Modified or MTAS test for the subject. The code can be entered as soon as the IEP or 504 plan team makes its decision.
ELL Exemption (Code 0004): This code is assigned to English learners who have been in this country for fewer than four consecutive years, have otherwise met the graduation requirements for their high school and are set to graduate after completing grades 9–12. The exemption applies to all three diploma tests—reading, mathematics, and writing. This code is assigned at the end of the student’s high school career.
Mathematics Alternate Pathway (Code 0006): This code is assigned to students who did not pass the Mathematics MCA or two subsequent Mathematics GRAD retests (or three Mathematics GRAD retests, if the student did not participate in the initial Mathematics MCA) and who participated in the following activities:
o Completed with a passing grade all state and local coursework and credits required for graduation by the school board granting the students their diploma.
o Participated in district-prescribed academic remediation in mathematics.
o Participated in the initial administration of the Mathematics MCA/GRAD and in at least two GRAD retests (Students who did not participate in the initial MCA/GRAD administration will need to participate in three retests or until they pass a retest.)
Pass Other State: Students moving to Minnesota who are proficient on another state’s ESEA accountability assessment that is accepted by MDE may have that assessment count for graduation. This condition is entered by MDE.
NOTE: A district with a student who has moved from another district and has documented decisions entered in GRR cannot make changes to the state record. If the district wants to retest the student, the district will need to contact the prior district about changing the record to Not Met in GRR.
