Reporting Year:


This report displays graduation rates that were calculated using Dashboard rules. While this data is similar to the Four-Year Cohort data on DataQuest, the data are not comparable. For the differences between this report and the reports on DataQuest, please refer to this data crosswalk.

For districts that have both Dashboard Alternative School Status (DASS) and comprehensive (i.e., non-DASS) schools, the graduation rate is based on both the combined four- and five-year graduation rate and the DASS grade 12 graduation rate. Districts with only comprehensive (i.e., non-DASS) schools have a graduation rate based on the combined four- and five-year graduation rate. County offices of education with only DASS schools have a graduation rate based on the DASS grade 12 graduation rate.

  • Number of Students in the Graduation Rate: This field reflects the number of students in the denominator of the graduation rate.
    • For the combined four- and five-year graduation rate, the denominator includes the number of students in the Class of 2021 plus students from the Class of 2020 who graduated in their fifth year.
    • For the DASS graduation rate, the denominator includes the number of students who graduated in 2020-21 plus students in grade 12 who did not graduate in 2020-21.
  • Number of Graduates: This field reflects the number of students in the numerator of the graduation rate.
    • For the combined four- and five-year graduation rate, the numerator includes the number of students in the Class of 2021 who graduated with a regular high school diploma plus fifth-year graduates (see definition below).
    • For the DASS graduation rate, the numerator includes the number of students who met the DASS graduation rate criteria and graduated at the end of 2020-21.
  • Number of Fifth-Year Graduates: This field reflects the fifth-year graduates from the combined graduation rate. These are students from the Class of 2020 who graduated in their fifth year at the end of 2020-21 with a regular high school diploma.
  • Graduation Rate: This field is the result of dividing the “Number of Graduates” by the “Number of Students in the Graduation Rate”.

Note: An asterisk (*) indicates that the student group consists of less than 11 students, the minimum size for reporting.
