  4. Why doesn't the CO dropout percentage rate equal 100 percent when added to the CO graduation rate?

    * Adding Colorado's dropout, completer, and still enrolled rates will not equal a 100%. These rates will not add up to 100% because the completer and still enrolled rates use a different set of students than the dropout rates. The dropout rate is calculated based on all students enrolled within the district between the 7th and 12th grade for the current year.
