Understanding the rates

There are many different ways of calculating graduation rates. These four-year cohort graduation rates provided by the School District were calculated by tracking a group of first-time freshman from fall 2007 (the cohort) through their high school years and measuring what percentage earned their diploma by fall 2011.

Under the School District’s system, students count as graduates or dropouts at the schools where they enrolled for the first time as 9th graders, even if they transferred to other schools in the District. Students who leave the District (for example, move to another city) are excluded from the rate calculations.

The state calculates the cohort graduation rate in a different way in measuring adequate yearly progress. Graduates are attributed to the school where they finished rather than the school where they started high school.
