FY2013 High School Federal Graduation Rates. Memorandum
Gent, E. Wayne
School District of Palm Beach County
On December 11, 2013, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) released graduation rates for the State of Florida and the School District of Palm Beach County (SDPBC). In FY2012, the 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 (2009-2013) for Florida, the SDPBC, and the other large urban districts; the FY2013 graduation rate data for Black, Hispanic, and White students; the graduation rates for SDPBC Traditional and charter school students; and the graduation rates for comprehensive high schools, charter high schools, and alternative high schools, respectively.
