Performance Reports

The High School Graduation Initiative (HSGI) collects data, on an annual basis, on five Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) Indicators.  In addition to the GPRA indicators grantees are also required by statute to report annually on the Event Dropout Rate for high schools served by the program.  All of the data, except for the Graduation Rate, posted on the ED.gov site were reported by grantees in their Annual Performance Report (APR).  The Graduation Rate data were identified using the U.S. Department of Education EdFacts Initiative.   EdFacts collects data reported by each State Education Agency (SEA) to the U.S. Department of Education as part of reporting and accountability requirements under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act (P.L. 107-110).  For more information on EdFacts please visit the website at: http://www2.ed.gov/about/inits/ed/edfacts/index.html

The five GPRA indicators and Statutorily Mandated Reporting Requirement are as follows:

Indicator #1:  For each high school served by the project, the school’s graduation rate, as defined in the State’s approved accountability plan for Part A of Title I of the ESEA.* 

Indicator #2:  The number and percentage of students enrolled in grades 9 through 12 in schools or programs served by the project who, during the most recent school year, earned one quarter of the credits necessary to graduate from high school with a regular diploma. 

Indicator #3:   The number and percentage of students served by the project who had not attended school for 60 or more instructional days immediately prior to their participation in the project;  and  the average daily attendance of such students while participating in the project. 

Indicator #4:  The number and percentage of students served by the project during the most recent school year who were two or more years behind their expected age and credit accumulation in high school; and  the number and percentage of such students who earned one half or more of the credits they need to graduate with a regular diploma. 

Indicator #5:  For each school served by the project that includes eighth grade the (A) average daily attendance of such school and (B) the number and percentage of students enrolled in eighth grade who enrolled in ninth grade at the start of the next year. 
Statutorily Mandated Reporting Requirement:  For each high school served by the project the annual dropout rate defined in Part H, Section 1829 USC 6561h) as the annual event school dropout rate for students leaving school in a single year. 

*The values have been derived by consolidating EdFacts; data for the schools served by each grantee (i.e., not all the schools in the districts and states that received an award participate in the HSGI program) and were not submitted directly to U.S. Department of Education. When there are fewer than 300 students in the population, graduation rates have been put in ranges in accordance with the Department's privacy protection requirements. The rate for the grantee falls somewhere within the published range.
