- Graduation Rates: The Total Cohort
- Statewide, the four-year graduation rate of the 2002 Cohort was one percentage point higher than that of previous cohorts. The graduation rates of the 2000 and 2001 Cohorts increased by six percentage points in the fifth year of high school.
- The graduation rate of each successive New York City Cohort has improved. In the 2000 and 2001 Cohorts, 9 to 10% of students graduated in the fifth year.
- In the Big 4 Cities, 56% of 2000 Cohort members had graduated by the end of Year 6.
- In districts outside the Big 5 Cities, 84% of 2000 Cohort members had graduated by the end of Year 6. The decrease between the 2000 and 2001 Cohorts is due to more accurate inclusion of students in the 2001 Cohort.
- While the graduation rate of Black Students is unacceptably low, it has improved.
- The graduation rate of Hispanic students also increased.
- The graduation rate of White students has been stable across cohorts.
- At the end of six years, more than three-quarters of general-education students statewide had graduated. The graduation rate increased between the 2000 and 2002 Cohorts.
- At the end of six years, fewer than half of students with disabilities had graduated. The graduation rate decreased between the 2000 and 2002 Cohorts. The graduation rates for the 2000 Cohort were probably inflated by failure to report some students with disabilities.
- While the graduation rate of English Language Learners in the 2000 Cohort improved after five and six years, fewer than half had graduated at the end of six years.
- The graduation rate of female students is higher than that of males and has been steady across the 2000, 2001 and 2002 Cohorts.
- The graduation rate of male students in the 2002 Cohort was slightly higher than that in previous cohorts.
- Graduation rates vary widely based on student need and district wealth.
