Deputy Supt. Rob Saxton announced last week that Oregon’s four-year graduation rate for 2013 was 68.7 percent, up only slightly from the previous year’s rate of 68.4 percent. The statewide four-year graduation rate has increased 2.5 percent over the past five years.
For the third year in a row, Hood River Valley High School graduation rates exceeded the state averages with an 81.4 percent four-year graduation rate and a 90.3 percent five-year completer rate for students.
This graduation rate looks at students who receive a standard diploma, a modified diploma, an extended diploma, a GED, an adult high school diploma, or alternative certificate. This rate is of particular importance as it indicates a student’s completion of a program of study.
The 2012-13 graduates were the first Oregon students required to demonstrate proficiency in essential skills of reading and writing in order to earn a diploma.
