1 The United States 4-year ACGR was estimated using both the reported 4-year ACGR data from 47 states and the District of Columbia and using imputed data for Idaho, Kentucky, and Oklahoma. The Bureau of Indian Education and Puerto Rico were not included in the United States 4-year ACGR estimate.
2 The Department of Education’s Office of Elementary and Secondary Education approved a timeline extension for these states to begin reporting 4-year ACGR data, resulting in the 4-year ACGR not being available for these states in SY 2010–11.
3 The Department of Education’s Office of Elementary and Secondary Education approved an exception for Puerto Rico to report 3-year ACGR data instead of 4-year ACGR data for SY 2010–11.
NOTE: Reported rates are presented rounded to the whole percentage point where the related population size is greater than 300. Estimates have been top coded to protect the confidentiality of individual student data. Top coding is a process where rates at or above a specific level are reported in a range, rather than a precise percentage, to protect the privacy of individuals represented either within the reported rate or its inverse. Based on the population size, top coded estimates are presented as being greater than or equal to a certain percent. For example, a rate of 94 percent may be presented as “≥90” percent for one population and “≥80” percent for another, dependent on total population size. 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.
