 Children Now used graduation rates from the cohort outcome data for Foster Youth. Due to changes in the methodology for calculating the 2016-17 Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate and subsequent years, the California Department of Education strongly discourages against comparing the 2016-17 Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate with the cohort data from prior years. An asterisk (*) appears where there are ten or fewer students to protect student privacy. Numbers and percentages are rounded to the nearest whole number.
