Graduation and Dropout Cohort Data
The graduation cohort rate is the number of students that finish high school in 4 years without attending school in an alternative setting out of all students who started freshman year. If a student transfers out of Stevensville School District, they are no longer included in this cohort. Similarly, if a student transfers into the district, they are now part of the cohort for Stevensville.
The drop-out rate tracks the percent of students in that year who leave Stevensville School District without subsequently enrolling in an approved alternative program (such as Montana Youth Challenge, Job Corps, or the Hamilton Alternative School) or enrolling in homeschool through Ravalli County.
