Graduation Counts: Compact and Task Force Report Guidance on State Implementation and Reporting

Graduation Counts: Compact and Task Force Report Guidance on State Implementation and Reporting

Since July 2005, all 50 state governors have signed the National Governors Association’s Graduation Counts Compact on State High School Graduation Data. Furthermore, 30 states have now received Honor States grants, for which implementation of the Graduation Counts Compact is a core requirement. This is a significant step forward, but much work remains to be done. Among the commitments made, governors agreed to report annually their progress on improving their graduation and dropout data. In order to fulfill this important obligation, states need to assess their status relative to the commitments in the compact and use this assessment to identify and take the steps necessary for full implementation.
