Definitions: High school graduation rate by four-year adjusted cohort formula.

Data Source: Kansas State Department of Education

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 yet to recover from the lowest high school graduation nine 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. The Kansas values were calculated based on the sum of all counties' values, and in 2015 and 2016, we found the graduation rates for 2015 and 2016 higher than the state rates generated from KSDE K-12 report.
