AZ falling grad rate adds urgency to turnaround efforts
June 17, 2015
Arizona school districts and nonprofit organizations are using nationally proven strategies and innovative practices in their efforts to turnaround a high school graduation rate that has declined in Arizona for three years in a row, notably among low-income and minority students, who are a majority of the state’s school-age population.
Arizona is one of only four states whose four-year adjusted cohort graduation rates have declined for the past three years that statistics are available, according to the U.S. Department of Education.
