Hermiston sees a rise in graduation rates

This morning, the Oregon Department of Education released the graduation rates for all public school districts in Oregon.  Results show a 74.2 percent graduation rate for the Hermiston School District, for the 2017-18 school year. This is an 8.3 percent increase from the previous year’s district rate of 65.82 percent. The district also saw an improvement in the four-year completer rate, with an 87.47 percent in comparison to the state’s average of 82.53 percent. The four-year completer rate includes students who earned an extended diploma or GED in addition to those who earned a standard or modified diploma, as presented in the graduation rate calculation.

 

“This increase is reflective of the hard work of our staff and students,” said Superintendent Tricia Mooney. “While we still have room for growth, it is exciting to see efforts paying off.  I am proud to be a part of the Hermiston School District, both as a staff member and parent, and I look forward to continued gains, as a result of the collaborative efforts of our students, staff, and parents.”
