SEA 111 - Graduation Rate Formula

Synopsis: Graduation rate formula. Specifies that students graduating as members of a cohort include students from the cohort who graduate during the expected graduation year or during a previous reporting year. Provides that students may count as graduating members of only one cohort. Corrects an incorrect cross-reference.

Possibly we should require our own state legislators to take a stab at the mathematics section of ISTEP testing. Apparently trying to figure out a graduation rate is a little complicated. This piece of legislation corrects what they couldn't calculate correctly in previous legislation. Remarkably, they did mostly agree that one graduate can only be counted in one graduation year -- not two.

House passed 99-0. Senate passed 38-3. Senators Arnold, Hume and Skinner dissented.
