Indiana graduation rate unchanged for 2012-13
Indiana's high school graduation rate remained steady at about 88 percent for the 2012-2013 school year.
However, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz says a slight increase in the non-waiver graduation rate points to more students graduating ready for college or a career.
The non-waiver rate was 81.72 percent up from 80.46 percent in 2012. That number gives a clearer picture of the number of students who are successfully passing their end of course assessments.
IPS went from a 65 percent graduation rate in 2012 to 68 percent in 2013. Four of the eight schools with graduating classes had rates of 80 percent or higher for 2013.
Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet achieved a 100-percent graduation rate for 2013, the only school to do so. Broad Ripple Magnet High School had a 93-percent graduation rate, up from 80 percent the year before.
