New Mexican students who have attended at least 10 days in a New Mexico Public school are included. For academic indicators, a student must have been enrolled and attended at least 90 days of school in the second semester in order to be included in the calculation. This means that any student who did not meet these criteria, will remain visible on a separate report that educators can use for follow-up and to support students and families. Graduation rates, growth, and college and career readiness are high-school indicators and include 9th through 12th grade students.
