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.

Looking at these numbers, the charter schools are not all that impressive. Most of the schools with the worst graduation rates are neighborhood schools whereas most of the charter high schools are lottery based. Thus, there is going to be some selection bias there. And the top high schools are SDP schools!

But what about Philadelphia's transient rates? Does a graduating senior support the percentages in his final school or the one her enrolled in the first September?

I see the last line in the article... how/ why does a graduate only apply to the last school they are in.... so if they transfer out in the last year - the school they start in, that gets them on the right path gets no credit. This is not fair.

Student engagement is key to student success. The Scale of Student Engagement/Disengagement (SOS ED), developed to identify student engagement levels that puts students at risk of not graduating high school, is quick, inexpensive, and easy to administer. It uses a paper-pen, bubble-sheet format, and solicits student feedback on research-identified indicators that place student at risk in school. The SOS ED can be administered to 6th through 12th graders and in a university study demonstrated high validity and reliability in identifying levels of student engagement. The SOS ED is created on the premise that all students can engage to achieve student success and if they do not, we, as educators, need to know the cause of the disengagement. To see how the SOS ED works, please watch this video: and visit or email me Dr. Lynn Frickey

With OBD-II, the PCM can recognize the misfire and shut off fuel to the injector to prevent damage to the converter. On OBD-II systems there is a data table that the PCM will use to determine fuel, spark, timing, etc. It uses inputs from various engine sensors to control this mixture. In this system, if one sensor goes bad the data table can eliminate its input from its formula and use a base setting to determine the fuel and spark settings.
