This dataset contains the 2012 four-year cohort graduation rates by district. The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) introduced the four-year cohort graduation rate with the graduating class of 2009. This approach was created when Connecticut and 49 other states signed an agreement with the National Governors’ Association to develop a uniform system for tracking students. The four-year cohort graduation rate is calculated by tracking an individual cohort, or group of students, from their initial entrance into Grade 9 through to graduation. The four-year cohort graduation rate represents the percentage of students who earn a standard high school diploma within four years. The calculation uses individual student-level data from the state's Public School Information System (PSIS) that school districts submitted and superintendents certified.
>> Double plus symbol (††) denotes not applicable
>> Asterisk symbol (*) denotes fewer than six in a cohort is suppressed
>> Outplaced students are counted only in district graduation calculation
>> Row percentages may not add to 100 percent because of rounding
>> District graduation rates may not be the same as the average of the graduation rates of the number schools in that district because of outplaced students.
>> Because each cohort is different from one year to another year, graduation rates are not comparable from year to year. Caution interpreting the differences between the previous year and the current year
This dataset contains the official listing of all public educational organizations in Connecticut as of April 25, 2014. Data elements include name, organization type, organization code, address, open date, interdistrict magnet status and grades offered.
Included data are collected by the CT State Department of Education (CSDE) through the Directory Manager (DM) portal in accordance with Connecticut General Statute (C.G.S.) 10-4. This critical information is used by other data collection systems and for state and federal reporting.
This dataset contains data by district on student SAT scores relative to the SAT College and Career Readiness (CCR) Benchmark score of 1550 (critical reading, mathematics and writing sections combined) for the graduating classes of 2012 and 2013. According to research conducted by the College Board*, a score of 1550 indicates that a student will have a 65 percent or greater likelihood of achieving a B- average or higher during the first year of college.
This dataset also provides an estimated SAT Participation Rate, which equals the number of SAT test-taking seniors in the district divided by the number of seniors enrolled in the district, as a percentage. These participation rates are considered an estimate because the grade level of the SAT test-taker is self-reported by the student at the time of registration for the SAT while the total number of seniors enrolled in the district is reported to the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) by the district. These are the best available estimates of SAT participation rates.
The Benchmark Performance reflect the results of only those who participate in the SAT. Because participation rates vary from district to district, the CSDE provides both the estimated Participation rates together with the Benchmark Performance in order to promote fair and valid comparisons across districts.
Note: The data are suppressed when there are too few test-takers to sufficiently protect privacy.
