The Indiana Department of Education released the 2015 high school graduation rate today.  In 2015, Indiana’s waiver graduation rate was 88.9% and the non-waiver rate was 82.8%. In 2014, the waiver graduation rate was 89.8% with a non-waiver graduation rate of 83.4%.  Importantly, over the last nine years, Indiana has seen its graduation rate rise over ten percentage points, from 78.4% in 2006-07 to 88.9% today.

“The 2015 graduation rate is a testament to the commitment of dedicated educators and the excellence of Hoosier students,” said Glenda Ritz, Indiana’s Superintendent of Public Instruction.  “I am pleased with the progress that Indiana’s schools have made in recent years to increase the number of high school graduates.  However, there is still work to be done to address the diverse needs of students across our state and to close the achievement gaps between student populations.  As Superintendent, I will continue to provide support to our schools so that educators have the resources they need to support Hoosier students.”
