When the number of students represented by a final status is not reported, the corresponding class size is presented in intervals of 50 to provide a general idea of the number of students in the class while maintaining student anonymity. In a class of <150, for example, the number of students is between 100 and 149. Completion I consists of students who graduated or continued high school. Completion II consists of students who graduated, continued high school, or received General Educational Development (GED) certificates.
