Indicator 1 - Graduation

Definition

Percent of youth with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) graduating from high school with a regular high school diploma.
(20 U.S.C. 1416 (a)(3)(A))

 

Measurement

States must report data for children with disabilities using the four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate required under the ESEA. Colorado defines this as:  [Number of students with disabilities who received a regular diploma in four years or less of entering from 9th grade] DIVIDED BY [Number of students with disabilities entering from 9th grade (plus number of transfers in minus number of verified transfers out)]

*Students who were reported as students with disabilities at any grade between 9th and 12th are included in the cohort as students with disabilities.
