Student Mobility

Entrants: The number and percentage of students entering (transferring in or re-entering) school during the September to June school year after the first day of school. A student moving from one school to another within the same school district as a result of promotion is not considered to be an entrant for mobility purposes unless the student entered school after the first day.

Withdrawals: The number and percentage of students withdrawing (transfers and terminations) for any reason during the September to June school year after the first day of school.

Data are reported at elementary (kindergarten through grade 5), middle (grades 6 through 8) and high (grades 9 through 12) school levels.

The percentage of entrants is calculated by dividing the number of entrants by the average daily membership. The percentage of withdrawals is calculated by dividing the number of withdrawals by the average daily membership. The student mobility percentage is calculated by dividing the sum of entrants and withdrawals by the average daily membership.
