Reported graduation rates oklahoma

Reported Graduation Rates: Oklahoma

Graduation rate is calculated by comparing the current number of graduates to the 9th grade student enrollment four years earlier. Beginning 2005 a Senior graduation rate was used, which divides current year graduates by graduates plus dropouts (under age 19) for the 12th grade that same year. SYE 2008 Average freshman graduation rate was added for state and county district totals, calculated as current graduates divided by the cohort of the average number of students in 8th, 9th, and 10th grades.

Achieving classroom excellence law

Achieving Classroom Excellence Law

  • The Achieving Classroom Excellence (ACE) law states that: Beginning with students entering the ninth grade in the 2008-2009 school year, every student shall demonstrate mastery of the state academic content standards in the following subject areas in order to graduate from a public high school with a standard diploma: 

  • (a) Algebra I;(b) English II; and(c) Two of the following five:(1) Algebra II,(2) Biology I,(3) English III,(4) Geometry, and(5) United States History. (70 O.S. § 1210.523)


Unintentional effect of achieving classroom excellence law

Unintentional Effect of Achieving Classroom Excellence Law

  • “Students who do not meet EOI requirements and thus do not graduate will be reported by a school district as a “dropout.” Students can enroll as a 5th year senior in 2012-13 to take ACE remediation classes and retake the EOI tests in order to earn a diploma. Without a high school diploma a student can attend a two-year community college such as Tulsa Community College or a technical school. But, without a high school diploma a student cannot attend a four - year college or university, receive a college scholarship or serve in the military.”
