Nonacademic Data

Published: 9/23/2013 3:30 PM


The nonacademic data includes results from attendance, retention, dropout, graduation and successful transition to adult life.

​The attendance rate provides the percent of attendance for all students and is collected from primary through grade twelve (12).

The retention rate is the percent of students that are held back (retained) in the prior grade and is collected for grades four (4) through twelve (12).

The dropout rate is the percent of students that drop out of school and is collected for grades seven (7) through twelve (12). The dropout definition holds schools accountable for students for a full school year, which includes summer dropouts.

The successful transition to adult life data provides detailed information on the status of Kentucky graduates. The transition data is collected in the fall of each year when school personnel survey prior year graduates. Successful measures for graduates include full-time college, vocational or technical school, military, work and a combination of work/school.

Senior Transition Survey

The survey is unchanged from last year. Each of the students described above should complete the survey prior to graduation. The completed surveys should be shared with the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Coordinator or a CTE Teacher to include the CTE information requested in the shaded area on page two.
