4-, 5-, and 6-year Composite Graduation Rate: 50% of the final designation score for high schools only
The 4-, 5-, and 6-year Composite Graduation Rate is a combination of those years’ Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate. Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate is the rate of graduates compared to the total number of students in their 4-year, 5-year, and 6-year cohort for schools and student demographic groups. Graduation Rate is calculated based ESSA High School Graduation Rate guidance. Students are reported at the home school of last enrollment. The cohort is based on the number of students who enter Grade 9 for the first time, adjusted by adding into the cohort any student who transfers in later during Grade 9 or during the next three years and subtracting any student from the cohort who transfers out, emigrates to another country, transfers to a prison or juvenile facility, or dies during that same period.
