Data Notes

These rates are calculated for students who graduated 4 years after entering high school as freshmen, called "4-year cohort". Graduates are students who graduate with a standard diploma. Students who get a GED or a Certificate of Completion are considered "non-graduates" in this computation of the graduation rate.   Due to the New Mexico Public Education Department's Shared Accountability model, we are unable to publish numerators and denominators for these estimates. For more information on these methods, see the Graduation Technical Manual at: http://ped.state.nm.us/Graduation/index.html.

Definition

The rate of students who began high school as a 9th grader and who then proceeded to graduate from high school 4 years later. In the case of transfers between school districts, a student's outcome was proportionally distributed among all school districts contributing to that student's outcome. The New Mexico Public Education Department calls this the Shared Accountability model.

How We Calculated the Rates

Numerator:The number of students that graduated from high school on time in a give year. This number is the total of all students and student fractions (in the case of transfers) for high school graduates, aggregated for each school district.
Denominator:The total number of students. This number is a count of all students enrolled for any period of time during the 4 year period ending in the year shown.
