CT graduation rates on rise

The Temple City Unified School District graduated 97.7 percent of its class, down a fraction of a percent from past year.

"We're happy to join the entire state of California in celebrating the fact that more of our youth are graduating from high school than ever before, while completing more college preparatory coursework", interim Superintendent Myong Leigh said in a statement.

"This celebration for the school district is the result of the hard work of our staff and students". These students have neither graduated nor dropped out.

"Connecticut is graduating more students than ever before and sending bright, talented young people into the world to make a big impact", Governor Malloy said when the stats were released Monday.

The Everyone Graduates Center at the Center for Social Organization of Schools at the School of Education at Johns Hopkins University seeks to identify the barriers to high school graduation, develop strategic solutions to overcoming these barriers and build local capacity to implement and sustain the solutions so that all students graduate prepared for adult success. That translates to 4,917 more graduates than the class of 2015.

The graduation rate for the students of Durham Unified increased to 97 percent, a gain of 3.6 percent from the previous year.

"Over this period, 2.8 million more students have graduated rather than dropped out, with significant implications to them, the economy, and society", the letter reads.

The San Gabriel Unified School District graduated 90.6 percent of its seniors past year.

"The students, parents and teachers of San Diego Unified should be immensely proud of this achievement", San Diego Unified Superintendent Cindy Marten said.

"This data shows we are closing opportunity gaps and preparing more LA Unified students for college and careers, but we still have work to do". "I expect these numbers to keep rising until we reach our goal of 100 percent graduation", she added, referring to the district's often-stated goal.

Countywide, the 81.7 percent graduation rate was a.1 percentage point drop from past year, but still 4.2 percentage points greater than in 2010.

Schools and districts are putting more effort into raising them, said Morgan Polikoff, an associate professor of education at the Rossier School of Education at the USC.

The graduation rate for the Class of 2016 was 83.2 percent, almost 1 percentage point higher than the year before, with 4,917 more students receiving their high school diploma in four years, compared with the previous graduating class, education officials said. The dropout rate counts students in grades 9 through 12 - which is why it simultaneously can increase with the state's graduation rate, which counts only one class of students. That means every student in those districts who began high school in 2012 graduated in 2016. The state expects to submit its plan in September. In 2011, the school's graduation rate was 51.4 percent. Lawndale High School had 91.9 percent, while Leuzinger followed with 88 percent, and only 80.5 percent of seniors graduated Hawthorne High a year ago. Of districts with at least 1,000 members in their class, Palos Verdes had 98.6 percent grad rate, Walnut Valley Unified had 97.5, Covina-Valley Unified was at 97.4.

While the state refers to the "four-year graduation rate", the figures include any students who graduate on time, including those in five-year early college programs who graduate in five years. But Asian and Native American students, students in special education, from low-income backgrounds, and whom English is a second language had lower rates. "That's better than 11 percent over the statewide average".

The Monrovia Unified School District saw one of the largest jumps in its graduation rates across the entire county, up 7 percent to 92.9 percent total.
