2011 Cohort Graduation and Dropout Rate Report
Utah State Office of Education
To align with new federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) regulations for graduation rate calculations, the Utah State Office of Education (USOE) is reporting a new graduation rate beginning with the 2011 graduating class (also known as the 2011 cohort). The four-year cohort rate (includes all students who started 9th grade in 2007-2008 plus transfers) enables a comparison among all 50 states, while the three-year cohort rate (includes all students who started 10th grade in 2008-2009 plus transfers) enables a comparison among all Utah Local Education Agencies (LEAs), since Utah has many 10-12th grade high schools. The new four-year cohort rate will be reported on the 2011-12 State Report Card and the 2011-12 AYP Report Cards; the state-, LEA-, and four year school-level rates will be published in this report (2011 Cohort Graduation and Dropout Rate Report). The new three-year cohort rate will be reported at the school and LEA level in this report. The 2011 cohort report publishes the following categories for the state, all LEAs, and all high schools: (1) Percentage of graduates; (2) Percentage of other completers; (3) Percentage of continuing students; and (4) Percentage of dropouts.
