Cohort Outcome Data

California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS) cohort outcome data reported by race/ethnicity, program participation, and gender.

Files include state, county, district, and school level data. Please refer to the file structure for details on what data are contained in the file.

Note: The methodology used to calculate the four-year Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate (ACGR) for the graduating classes of 2010–2016 is not consistent with published non-regulatory guidance from the U.S. Department of Education. The CDE has since modified the four-year ACGR calculation methodology to fully align with currently published non-regulatory guidance effective for the graduating class of 2017 forward. As a result, the CDE strongly recommends against comparing the four-year ACGR for 2017 onward with the four-year ACGR for 2010–2016 provided below.
