Definitions: Cumulative dropout rates= 1 - (1 - annual rate)^4. This formula applies the annual rate to a progressively declining base population. The cumulative rate represents the percentage of current students who will early exit or drop out before reaching graduation if the annual rate does not change.

The annual dropout rate is the percent of early exit non-graduates who were not identified as either passing the General Educational Development (GED) test or enrolled in college. The definition excludes students who were homeschooled, suspended, temporarily expelled, truant, incarcerated, or who completed a high school program (diploma or certificate), transferred to another high school, or died. The rate is calculated by dividing the number of students who dropped out before graduation by the October 1 enrollment count plus students who dropped out before October 1.
