High School Graduation
DCYF’s third outcome goal related to education is that high school students graduate on time. Among 83,799 high school students in the 2020 cohort, 69,482 (83%) graduated on time.
Among that 2020 cohort, about half (42,645) are indicated as low-income students. Non-low-income students graduated at a rate of 91%. By comparison, 75% of low-income students graduated on time.
Of youth receiving Juvenile Rehabilitation services during the 2005-2006 school year who were enrolled in ninth grade, 9 percent graduated on time (2008-2009) and an additional 5 percent graduated within the following two years.
