Students graduating from high school (4 year longitudinal)

Data Provided By

Definitions: The 4-year longitudinal graduation rate as reported by the Ohio Department of Education.

Data Source: Ohio Department of Education, Ohio School Report Cards. Extracted from

Footnotes: The longitudinal graduation rate places students into a cohort when they enter 9th grade. Each student is then tracked to determine whether they graduate within 4 years or are a non-graduate.

School districts were assigned to the county where their district office is located. 

In order to include summer graduates in the graduation rate calculation, the four-year graduation rate is lagged by one year so that the rate on the 2017 report card represents the Four-Year rate for the graduating class of 2016.

The year refers to spring of the academic year (ex. 2010 refers to the 2009-2010 school year).
