  1. 1. Edgewood High School’s Graduation Rate Melissa Larkins AD 682.61 Web 2.0 Demo
  2. 2. Goal During the 2010-2011 school year , Edgewood High School will achieve 80% graduation rate as measured by the Maryland State Department of Education Standards. Actions  Monitor 12th graders not on track for graduation and create action plans for those students  Review grades and action plans at the end of each quarter to determine effectiveness and need for revision of intervention strategies.
  3. 3. Where were we and where do we need to go? Graduation Rate 2011 ≥ 80% 2010 77.6% 2009 74.47% 2008 75.77% 2007 74.11% 2006 76.33% 2005 76.99% Did Not Meet AYP Met AYP Needed to meet AYP
  4. 4. How is graduation rate calculated? In 2009-2010, the Graduation Rate was calculated using the Leaver Rate: (high school graduates) ÷ (sum of dropouts in grades 9 through 12 + the number of high school graduates) Source: www.mdreportcard.org • In 2010-2011, the Graduation Rate will be calculated using the Leaver Rate, but separating students into 4 year or 5 year cohorts. This will ensure that all students are accounted for whether they followed a 4 year or 5 year plan.
