IPS graduation rate continues 10-year climb, even as rate drops statewide

IPS graduation rate continues 10-year climb, even as rate drops statewide

The school also had 13 of its 15 special education students earn a diploma last spring, while two other students received a certificate of completion, which isn't considered as an official high school diploma and counts against a school's graduation rate.

Since 2006, the department says, the graduation rate in IN has risen by almost 10 percentage points. The state's 2017 graduation rate ranks as the lowest since the 2010-2011 school year - and its non-waiver graduation rate in 2017 was even lower (by.3%) than that year. "Our graduation rate has exceeded our Vision 2020 target for the second year in a row and I'm extremely proud to see the rates for African American and Hispanic students increasing by 5% and 1.3% respectively". Matt Jones, principal, said each year the school strives for at least a 90 percent rate. Indiana's overall graduation rate saw a 2-point drop a year ago, falling to 87.19 percent from 89.10 percent in 2016.

Northwest Allen's Carroll High School managed a graduation rate of 98.8 percent, ahead of Southwest Allen County Schools' Homestead High School's 96.13 percent. They vastly expanded the state's charter school system and established a statewide program where some students could get public money to pay for private school tuition.

"We recognize there is still work to be done, and will continue to partner with local districts to ensure every student graduates prepared for life beyond high school", state Superintendent Jennifer McCormick said in a statement.

At the district level, Franklin Township had the highest graduation rate (97 percent). East Allen County Schools' graduation rate was 91.36. That's a 6-point increase from 2016, and a 35-point increase over the past 10 years.

Officials gathered in Charleston Friday to recognize almost 70 schools from throughout the state which had graduation rates of 90 percent or higher for the 2016-17 school year.

Pioneer High School's graduation rate for 2017 was 86.3 percent.

FWCS' graduation rate was a few tenths of a percent lower in 2017 at 88.95 percent, and the non-waiver rate was down 2 percentage points to 76.6 percent.
