The Provincial graduation rates shown in the chart below compare 2014/2015 rates against the established targets for 2020. To hit the 2020 targets, an improvement of approximately 2% is required each year for the next five years.
For the past several years, growth in this area has been stagnant. The Graduation Rates Leadership Team’s goal is to begin to identify significant factors that correlate with on-time graduation and work with school divisions to begin to develop and implement best practices to address these factors.
One such factor that was identified as significant in data collected by the ministry was that there is a direct correlation among all subpoplulations between attendance levels and on-time graduation rates.
