New 4-year Cohort Graduation Rate Calculation Now Being Implemented
Effective with the 2009-10 school year, the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) will begin implementation of a new methodology to calculate the graduation rate for all public high schools, comprehensive Career and Technical Centers (CTCs) and charter schools that graduate students from 12th grade.
The transition to the new method of calculating the graduation rate is required by the U.S. Department of Education, and is a more precise way to measure the true graduation rate.
