||The SHIP currently uses the four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate which calculates the percentage of students who graduate in 4 years in an adjusted cohort which includes the group of students who enter 9th grade for the first time, and adjusts for transfers in and out of the cohort. The SHIP previously used the Leaver Rate to measure high school graduation (http://www.mdreportcard.org/supporting/ definitions.aspx?WDATA=def&K=01AAAA&inc=graduation).
