This story is the third in our series, “Who’s Counted: Taking a Closer Look at School District Graduation Rates.” The first part of the series examined how dropout re-engagement programs are excluded from district graduation rates under a state policy, and the second part focused on how online schools that enroll students from across the state are also left out of district graduation rate calculations.
