High School Completers

Graduate with Diploma

News Announcements

Schools report the number of students who completed 4 years of high school between September 1 and August 31 of a given year.

The attached reports show the number of high school completers and the types of diplomas earned for schools, districts, and counties. Statewide high school completer reports show demographic characteristics such as gender, race/ethnicity, and economic disadvantage.

High school completer data is included in reports to the Legislature on the status of high school completers, and also in reports produced by the National Center for Education Statistics. It is also used for determining Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) under the No Child Left Behind Act, and in the calculation of the Graduation Rate.

For information on graduation rate formulas and definitions of 2008-09 High School Completers, see page 7 of the Graduates and Dropouts Reporting Manual PDF.

Graduation Rates for schools are located in Table A8 in the Dropout Data Excel tables, which are posted for each year at the following site: http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=1 (scroll down to the links at the bottom of the page).
