Appendix H: Number of Additional Graduates Needed to Reach a 90 Percent Graduation Rate by State and Subgroup
(Note: This table can be sorted by clicking on any heading)
Note. † = Not applicable: Data are not expected to be reported by the SEA for SY2011-12 or SY2012-13. This table is sorted by the total number of K-12 enrollment at the district level for schools with any locale code in the sources below. Percent of Low-Income Students in the Cohort, 2013 (%) = the number of low-income students divided by the total cohort size within each state. Estimated Non-Low-Income ACGR (%) = the estimated graduates from all students minus low-income graduates divided by the estimated total cohort of all students minus low-income within the cohort (i.e., using state level ACGRs). Gap Change Between Non-Low-Income and Low-Income ACGR (Percentage Points), 2011-13 = the gap between the estimated non-low-income and low-income ACGRs from 2010-11 to 2012-13. Therefore, positive values indicate gap closure and negative values indicate gap widening.
