|2016-2017, 2015-2016, 2014-2015, 2013-2014, 2012-2013, 2011-2012, 2010-2011||ALABAMA||150, 150151, 151||695, 695696, 696||LEA, SEA||Alabama: The Alabama State Department of Education has indicated that their adjusted cohort graduation rate data was misstated. Please use Alabama’s adjusted cohort graduation rate data with caution. For more information, please see the following press release issued by the state: https://www.alsde.edu/sec/comm/News%20Releases/12-08-2016%20Graduation%20Rate%20Review.pdf.|
|2016-2017, 2015-2016, 2014-2015, 2013-2014, 2012-2013, 2011-2012, 2010-2011||DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA||150, 150151, 151||695, 695696, 696||LEA, SEA||District of Columbia: The Office of the State Superintended of Education (OSSE) calculates the ACGR based on certified graduates lists that are provided by LEAs to OSSE. Each LEA is responsible for applying its graduation policies to its potential graduates when creating the certified graduates list. One of DC’s LEAs is modifying its method for applying its graduation policies, which may result in future changes to these numbers.

|2013-2014||WASHINGTON||150, 150151, 151||695, 695696, 696||LEA, SEA||Washington submitted conflicting Asian permitted values. Upon examination, it appears as though the Asian/Pacific Islander count is an aggregation of the Asian and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander counts. Due to this potential error, the Asian/Pacific Islander data may be double the actual counts of Asian/Pacific Islander students in the adjusted-cohort graduation rate. Almost all subgroup cohort counts reported at the SEA level are significantly higher than aggregated LEA subgroup counts (5.0 to 11.7% higher).|
|2013-2014||DELAWARE||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students increased by 10 percent or more between SY2012-13 and SY2013-14.||
The increase in Delaware's child count is attributed to: 1) Delaware MEP recruiter developed a more extensive agricultural employer list and was able to find new qualifying families; 2) district screenings through the agricultural work surveys produced more leads for the MEP recruiter; and 3) The interstate communication between both Pennsylvania and Maryland MEPs created additional contacts with the incoming families.
|2013-2014||INDIANA||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students increased by 10 percent or more between SY2012-13 and SY2013-14.||
The IDOE placed a particular focus on recruitment efforts by having qualified recruitment field specialists that work and live in the region they serve. In addition, regional service centers and local school corporations assisted in our recruitment efforts, something that had never been done in the past. Through their expert identification skills, community relationships, and understanding of the program, we have seen an increase in the overall number of identified migrant students around the state.
|2013-2014||MAINE||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students increased by 10 percent or more between SY2012-13 and SY2013-14.||
The twelve percent increase in the Category 1 Child Count from CSPR reporting period 2012-2013 to reporting period 2013-2014 is a result of seasoned recruiters and improved ID&R practices, consistent ID&R administrators, and more efficient service provision from 9/1/2013 - 8/31/2014.
The 2014 Massachusetts Category 1 Child Count of 605 is an increase of 58 eligible migrant children over last year's count of 547. This represents a 10.6% increase over last year. Massachusetts attributes this increase to enhanced recruitment strategies:
|2013-2014, 2012-2013||NEW MEXICO||121||634||SEA||When reporting SY2013-14 data, New Mexico identified a coding error which excluded students who should have been counted as eligible migratory students in SY2012-13.|
The number of migratory students receiving services for grades 10-12 exceed our eligible numbers because of continuation of services for those grades.
|2013-2014||NORTH DAKOTA||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students decreased by 10 percent or more between SY2012-13 and SY2013-14.||
For the category 1 child count North Dakota did see a 10% decrease in the number of migrant students in our state. The North Dakota summer migrant education program has found that once again our migrant families are ending their many years of migratory work and are finding work in the North Dakota oil fields.
