% of youth with IEPs graduating with regular diploma

Indicator 1 is applicable only to secondary programs.

 

Graduation Rate reflects the percentage of students with IEPs who entered high school together at grade 9 who earned a high school diploma.  Data from this indicator is lagged from one year prior.  

 

Kentucky utilizes the OSEP method to calculate the graduation rate for students with disabilities:

 

Old formula:  # graduates receiving regular diplomas divided by # graduates receiving regular diplomas + # GEDs (and certificates) + # dropouts + # who maxed out in age + # deceased

 

New formula for 2022 Submission: # graduates receiving regular diplomas divided by # graduates receiving regular diplomas + # graduates receiving alternate diploma+ # dropouts + # who maxed in age 

 

Data regarding graduation rate may be found in the 2019-20 School Report Card which may be accessed HERE.    Click on a specific district and scroll down to Academic Readiness under Transition Readiness. Click on the High School Graduation tab and scroll down to “Students With Disabilities (IEP)” under 4-Year Graduation Rate. This will provide the graduation rate for that district.

 

        The target for the 2019-20 school year was 79.6%.

             The data source for Indicator 1 is Section 618 data which is self reported by districts through the end of

                    the year exiting report.
