Definitions:

This is the percent of students in the most recently completed school year who have attained a diploma or a GED. 

This includes students who graduated outside of the traditional four-year time-frame (both early and late graduates). This also includes students who obtained an alternate completion credential before age 21, namely the GED. The Department collects GED information for all test takers in South Dakota; any schools with students who have completed a GED outside of South Dakota can submit that record to the Department through the appeal process available to districts.

NOTE: If students did not attend at least 50% of their last enrolled year at one school, students counted at the high school they attended the longest, or the last enrolled if there are multiple with equal enrollment lengths.

Calculation

Numerator = Number of students who obtained a high school diploma or GED in the most recently completed school year

Grade 11 dropouts in 2016-17 + Grade 12 dropouts in 2017-18) + the number of students who obtained a high school diploma or GED in the most recently completed school year
