Indicator 1 - Graduation
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))
States must report data for children with disabilities using an 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 the number of transfers in minus the 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.
Several changes have occurred in Indicator 1 over the last 5 years.
- The target had historically been 80% for this indicator. This changed for the data reported for SY 2015-16 when a new target was calculated.
- SY 2015-16 was the last year that the 4-yr Cohort was used.
- SY 2016-17 was the first year that the 7-yr Cohort was used.
How is Colorado doing on this indicator?
