Explanation

The US Department of Education passed regulations requiring all states to calculate graduation using a 4-year adjusted cohort rate. In addition, states were given the option to use an extended-year rate; Kansas chose to calculate a 5-year rate. The 4-year adjusted cohort graduation rate reflects the percent of students who were first time 9th graders in 2008-2009 and who graduated four years later (by September 30, 2012) with adjustments during the four years for transfers in and out. The 5-year adjusted cohort graduation rate is the percent of students who were first time 9th graders in 2007-2008 that graduated five years later (by September 30, 2012).

NOTE: In the 4-year adjusted cohort graduation rate, any student who does not graduate in the expected four years—even if they are still in school—is considered a non-graduate and counts against the graduation rate. This rule is extended to five years in the 5-year adjusted cohort graduation rate.

The 4-year adjusted cohort graduation rate formula is as follows:
    # 2012 graduates (# of cohort members earning a regular HS diploma by Sept. 30, 2012) X 100% = rate
    # 1st time 9th graders in fall 2008 plus transfers in minus students who transfer out,
    emigrate, or die during 2011-2012, 2010-2011, 2009-2010 and 2008-2009

The 5-year adjusted cohort graduation rate formula is as follows:
    # 2012 graduates (# of cohort members earning a regular HS diploma by Sept. 30, 2012) X 100% = rate
    # 1st time 9th graders in fall 2007 plus transfers in minus students who transfer out,
    emigrate, or die during 2011-2012, 2010-2011, 2009-2010, 2008-2009 and 2007-2008
