AH-5.2 Increase the proportion of students who are served under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act who graduate high school with a diploma
About the Data
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Number of students, aged 14 to 21years, served under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Part B, who graduated with a diploma
Number of students, aged 14 to 21 years, served under IDEA, Part B, who exited school because they graduated with a regular high school diploma, received a certificate, reached maximum age, or dropped out
To determine the denominator, the following categories of students were not counted in the total: students who transferred to regular education and students who moved and were known to be continuing. The following categories were included in the denominator: students who graduated with a diploma, students who received a certificate, students who reached maximum age, students who dropped out, and students who died.
A certificate is a document that students who leave school can be issued if they did not meet the same standards for graduation as students without disabilities. Examples of certificates include a modified diploma, a certificate of completion, and an alternate degree that is not fully aligned with the State’s educational standards.
