Definition and Source



This indicator represents the percentage of students in a cohort, adjusted for transfers in and out of school, district, or state, that graduate with a regular high school diploma within four years of the first enrollment in ninth grade. The denominator for the percentage is the cohort for that graduating class in respective geographic areas. 

A cohort includes the number of first-time 9th graders in the fall of a particular school year plus students who transfer in, minus students who transfer out during the next four school years.
