The graduation rates below are calculated to meet different needs. The formulas used to calculate each graduation rate are included in the definition links. The graduation rate that Maryland has previously reported for School Progress calculations is called the Leaver Rate. However, federal law now requires that Maryland use and adjusted cohort graduation rate to determine School Progress by 2011. The adjusted cohort graduation rate ensures that all students who entered 9th grade together are accounted for in the graduation rate at the end of four years and at the end of five years.
