State Education Department releases graduation rates

The Indiana Department of Education released graduation rate data today for the 2012-2013 school year.

The overall graduation rate for all schools was 88.6 percent, virtually unchanged from the previous year’s rate of 88.7 percent.

For the Vigo County School Corp., the overall graduation rate in 2013 was 91.1 percent, down from 93.4 percent in 2012. In 2011, it was 88.4 percent.

At Terre Haute North Vigo, the graduation rate was 91 percent, down from 94.4 percent in 2012; at South Vigo, 92.1 percent, down from 93.6 percent the year before.

At West Vigo, the overall graduation rate was 94.7 percent last year, down from 97.4 percent in 2012; at Booker T. Washington, 90.5 percent, up from 89.5 percent the year before; and at McLean, 59.3 percent, down from 69.8 percent in 2012.

At Washington, the cohort size was 21 students and the number of graduates was 19. At McLean, the cohort size was 27, with 16 students graduating.

Statewide, data shows that the state’s non-waiver graduation rate was 81.72 percent, up from 80.46 percent in 2012.

Non-waiver data is important for federal reporting requirements, as well as providing a more full picture of the number of students who are successfully passing their end-of-course assessments.

In Vigo County, the nonwaiver graduation rate is 82.6 percent, and the waiver graduation rate is 8.5 percent.

In addition to the statewide data, the DOE released information on graduation rate by school and school corporation, public and non-public schools, as well as graduation rate by race and ethnicity.

“There is some encouraging information in this release,” said Glenda Ritz, Indiana superintendent of public instruction. “While the overall graduation rate is largely the same as it was in 2012, when you dig into the data, it becomes clear that more of our students are graduating without a waiver and passing their end-of-course assessments. This is a crucial step in ensuring that our students graduate from high school both college and career ready.”
