Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate Verification Technical Guide

Wednesday, May 1, 2019

This document provides the technical guidance for LEAs to work with the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) to ensure the accuracy of Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate (ACGR) data. For more detailed information on the ACGR policy, calculation, and definition of key terms, please refer to the Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate: Policy Guide, which is also available on the “Cohort Sheet’” of the 2018-19 school year Data Validation Qlik application.

The goals of this ACGR Technical Guide are to ensure that:

  1. Stakeholders understand the ACGR validation process and timeline;
  2. Stakeholders understand their responsibilities in the validation of data needed for accurate calculation of the ACGR; and
  3. Stakeholders understand how to submit documentation for appeals and access assistance with the validation process when needed.
