    Remember that District numbers include some students who are not enrolled in our comprehensive high schools or in HOA. These could be students at Miller Education Center East, in our Transition Program, adjudicated youth, or students who are on out-of-district placements.

    *Please note that the dropout rate is still calculated using the NCES model, which divides the total number of dropouts in a given year in grades 9-12 by the number of students in grades 9-12--the numbers and rate do not correlate directly to information about the cohort.

    Therefore, the following is true about the graduating class of 2018, which is actually the 2014-15 cohort, as the cohort is named by the first year students entered high school:

    • 1269 graduated with a regular diploma on time in 2018
    • 53 graduated with a modified diploma on time in 2018
    • 69 earned an extended diploma or GED
    • 0 earned an alternative certificate
    • 72 were continuing their enrollment beyond 2018
    • 102 were classified as "other non-completers" - either dropouts or undeclared as to their plans to complete the credits necessary for graduation
    • Some of those 102 (perhaps most) are in the group of 119 students who dropped out in the 2017-18 school year, though that group also may include freshmen, sophomores, and juniors - as well as students who were not enrolled in our comprehensive high schools or HOA (see explanation above) - who dropped out in 2017-18 and are not members of the 2014-15 cohort.
