INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) – Graduation data for the 2012-2013 school year was released Wednesday by the Indiana Department of Education.
According to DOE’s report, the state’s non-waiver graduation rate was 81.72 percent, an increase from 80.46 percent in 2012.
The overall graduation rate for all schools was 88.6 percent, similar to the prior year’s rate of 88.7 percent. Non-waiver data shows that more students are successfully passing their end of course assessments.
In addition to releasing statewide data, the Department released a wealth of other data, including graduation rate by school and school corporation, public and non-public schools, as well as graduation rate by race and ethnicity.
Glenda Ritz, Indiana’s Superintendent of Public Instruction, told News 18 in a press release that there is some encouraging information in this release.
“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,” Ritz said. “This is a crucial step in ensuring that our students graduate from high school both college and career ready.”
