1 The United States 4-year ACGRs were estimated using both the reported 4-year ACGR data from 49 states and the District of Columbia and using imputed data for Idaho. The estimate for American Indian/Alaska Native students also includes imputed data for Virginia.
2 The Department of Education's Office of Elementary and Secondary Education approved a timeline extension for Idaho to begin reporting 4-year ACGR data. As a result, the 4-year ACGR data for Idaho are not available for SY 2012–13.
3 Data editing procedures were applied to adjust for reporting anomalies in the Asian and Asian Pacific Islander categories.
NOTE: To protect the confidentiality of individual student data, ACGRs are shown at varying levels of precision depending on the size of the cohort population for each category cell. There are some differences in how states implemented the requirements for the ACGR, leading to the potential for differences across states in how the rates are calculated. This is particularly applicable to the population of children with disabilities. Black includes African American, Hispanic includes Latino, Asian/Pacific Islander includes Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, and American Indian includes Alaska Native. Race categories exclude Hispanic origin unless specified.
