FY2014 High School Federal Graduation Rates. Memorandum
Gent, E. Wayne
School District of Palm Beach County
In FY2014, the State of Florida and the School District of Palm Beach County (SDPBC) outperformed Florida and other large urban school districts and was the only large urban district to have an increased graduation rate. In FY2012, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) accountability system began using the Federal Graduation Rate, which is a more rigorous standard than the National Governors Association (NGA) rate used previously. The Federal Graduation Rate includes standard diplomas but excludes special diplomas and GEDs (General Education Diplomas). This memorandum reports the graduation rates for the past five years (FY2010-FY2014) for Florida, the SDPBC, and the other large urban districts; the graduation rates for the past five years (FY2010-FY2014) for Black, Hispanic, and White students; the graduation rates for the past three years (FY2012-FY2014) for SDPBC District operated and charter schools; and graduation rates for District operated high schools, charter high schools, and alternative high schools, respectively. [For the previous report, "FY2013 High School Federal Graduation Rates. Memorandum," see ED603830.]
