Key to dataClick through above to find in-depth data on any school. Here is how to interpret it: On-time grads: On-time graduates are students who took four years to graduate from high school. The numbers include students who changed high schools over the years. Total grads: Total graduates include students who took more than four years to graduate, but still did earn a diploma. On-time grads percentage: On-time graduation percentage relates to the total size of a class who started at a high school and the number who received a diploma four years later.
Raising grad ratesThe Everett School District has been able to improve its on-time graduation rate from just 53 percent on time in 2003 to nearly 82 percent in the 2009-10 school year. It did so in part by identifying students during their freshman year who might be in trouble academically and at risk of dropping out. It has also hired “success coordinators” so that when a student fails a class, the family is contacted and a plan is devised to help them succeed in class and graduate.
