Graduation Rate Hits New Peak
Graduation and dropout rates released by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education indicate for the fourth year in a row, the Boston Public Schools graduation rate continues to climb while the annual dropout rate continues its downward trend. The four-year graduation rate is at the highest level since the state started keeping track.
Graduation Rate Climbs for 4th Consecutive Year
Of the students who entered high school in the 2006/2007 school year, 63.2% graduated within four years. This 2010 data is an increase of 1.8 percentage points from 2009 and more than 5 percentage points since 2007. BPS calculates the dropout rate fell from 6.4% in 2009 to 5.7% in 2010.
Graduation Rate Key Part of Accelaration Agenda
The BPS Acceleration Agenda, a five-year strategic plan for the district introduced in 2009, sets a graduation rate goal of at least 80% and an annual dropout rate of 3% or lower by 2014.
