Trustees Received an Update on Graduation Rates

Trustees received a presentation on four-year high school graduation rates. Highlights included:

  • The Class of 2022 saw an increase in graduation rates from 80.9% to 81.3%.
  • Student groups that did not increase graduation rates include American Indian/ Alaskan Native, Black/African American, and students who identify as two or more Races.
  • CCSD graduation rates are consistent with statewide trends.
  • Providing high-quality Tier I instruction and Tier II and III interventions for students through MTSS and effective monitoring tools for guiding student progress should help with increases in the four-year graduation rate.

Trustees Received an Update on Winter MAP Growth

  • Most grade ranges observed little improvement year-over-year in projected proficiency in SBAC and ACT
  • Exceptions to that rule included English Language Learners, whose progress is slightly decreasing.
  • Note: 2020-2021 assessments were completed remotely due to COVID, and participation rates were lower.
  • Academic rebounding continues but student achievement is lower than pre-pandemic levels and will likely take years to recover fully.
