Yesterday the State Education Department (SED) released high school graduation rates for the 2007 cohort (students who entered 9th grade in 2007) who theoretically should have graduated in 2011. These data show that New York’s overall graduation rate continues to rise slowly over time.

Well, at Royalton-Hartland it didn't.

Looking at my post blog posts, the statistic for 2010 graduation was 88%.

According to the stats released yesterday, for those who graduated in June of 2011 the 4-year graduation rate was a pitiful 82% at Royalton-Hartland. Taking into consideration those who needed summer school to make it into the workplace, the graduation rate rose to 86.6% by August 2011.
