Michigan's High School Graduation Rates Improve

UNDATED (WHTC) -- The state of Michigan is reporting that graduation rates continue to improve.  The 2013 graduating class increased to 76.96 percent, up seven tenths of a percent from 2012.  The Michigan Center for Educational Performance and Information released the information on Wednesday.  Graduation rates are calculated by following individual students from when they enter the ninth grade.  Even better news is that the dropout rates show a corresponding downward trend, with the rate for 2013 at 10.54 percent, a decrease from 2012 of .17 percent.  More information on CEPI’s report can be found at http://mischooldata.org
