York Region District School Board’s five-year graduation rate has climbed to an impressive 93 per cent, a half percent higher than last year’s rate.
Results indicate that over the past seven cohorts of students, the graduation rates of our students has steadily grown from 86.5 to 93 per cent – an increase of over six per cent.
The York public board’s graduation rate exceeds the provincial rate of 86 by seven per cent.
Continuously increasing student achievement and well-being is a key component of the trustees’ Multi-Year Plan,” said Loralea Carruthers, Chair of the Board. “We’re proud of all the hard work our students do to graduate well prepared for the various pathways ahead of them.”
The graduation rate is the percentage of students belonging to the same Grade 9 cohort who obtained an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent within five years of beginning high school, less attrition.
