District At A Glance
Tracking the success of high school graduates
The Colorado Department of Higher Education is committed to providing timely and relevant information to school districts regarding the postsecondary progress and success of their high school graduates.
On this page, you can find two-page overviews (PDFs for easy printing) of your school district’s outcomes. These overviews follow Colorado's Class of 2012 and provide information on college-going rates, first-year postsecondary outcomes, concurrent enrollment and remedial education.
In addition, four years' worth of these data - back to the Class of 2009 - are included in a searchable database. This database also includes information by high school.

- The National Student Clearinghouse database is used to collect information on enrollment and retention rates for Colorado high school graduates who attend out-of-state institutions or private institutions that are currently not included in SURDS.
- Note: Because of concerns about student privacy, districts with fewer than 25 graduates are not included in the data.
