PED Secretary Dr. Karen Trujillo says the rate hit 73.9-percent, a nearly three-percent jump from the previous school year.

According to PED officials, rates increased across all student subgroups including Hispanic and American Indian students, students with disabilities, and English learners.

“The continued upward trend in the statewide graduation rate is because of the hard work of students and educators throughout our state over a period of many years," said Trujillo. "We will continue to work together with local school leaders to build on these impressive gains.”
