  • Description
    4-year Cohort High School Graduation Rate reports the percentage of graduating high school students in 4-year cohorts, per subgroup.
  • Full Description
    The variable examined is graduation status after four years of high school. Early and summer graduates are considered graduates after four years. The "other" rate includes students who dropped out of high school, enrolled in a GED program, transferred to post-secondary education, or have unknown status. Special education students in school after four years but subsequently graduated are not included in the "still enrolled" rate due to Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) restrictions. The subgroups reported are gender, race/ethnicity, English language learners, special education students, and students eligible for free or reduced-price meals (FRPM). The data replace the rate of students enrolled in 12th grade in September who graduated the following June. Connecticut State Department of Education (SDE) collects data longitudinally by four-year cohorts. SDE reports and carries graduation rates of four-year cohorts annually.
