Footnotes: 2010 graduation data and beyond use the Four-Year Adjusted Cohort formulas which are significantly different than the NCLB formulas and the new formula results in a drop in the rate. The Four-Year Adjusted Cohort formula: Number of students who graduate in four years with a regular high school diploma ÷ (Number of students who entered high school four years earlier + students who transferred in - students who transfer out, emigrate, or die during the four years.) Kiowa County School District has the lowest high school graduation rate more than ten years in a row after the 2007 tornado.  However in recent years, the low graduation was mainly attributed to a virtual school in the unified school district.
