Data and Reports


“Mobility” as a general term refers to students leaving and entering a school or a district. Student mobility helps us understand some of the challenges schools and districts face in educating students. It takes time for a student to navigate a new school, and that time can affect the student’s learning. Mobility can be calculated in many different ways. The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction offers three sets of calculations:

  1. Continuity – Proportion of students who were enrolled at the start of the year, but who do not stay enrolled for the full year;
  2. Turnover rate – Proportion of students who are not enrolled the full year; and
  3. Ins and outs – The flow of students throughout the year.

The first worksheet in the mobility file (titled “Notes”) provides important notes about how the measures were calculated.
