Will Your Graduation be On-Time?

Each school district will be provided with a district-wide graduation rate as well as graduation rates by high school and by subgroups of students.

Virginia began tracking individual students who entered the ninth grade in 2004-05. The goal was to determine the percentage of those students who graduated on-time, meaning in the four years of a traditional high school career.

Prior to the new On-Time Graduation Rate, rates were calculated and reported in a handful of different methods. But the National Governor’s Association task force in 2005 recommended that all states adopt a graduation rate to determine how many students finish “on-time.” North Dakota is the only state currently not looking at making the change.

With the new formula will come new numbers and a different way of talking about graduation rates. Got questions about the new rate and how it is calculated? Well we’ve got answers!
