FY20 Federal High School Graduation Rates. Executive Summary
Fennoy, Donald E., II.; Oswald, Keith; Sheffield, Glenda; Howard, Mark
School District of Palm Beach County
On January 7, 2020, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) released high school graduation rates for the State of Florida and the School District of Palm Beach County (District). It should be noted that due to COVID-19, assessment requirements for graduation were waived for FY20 seniors who had yet to meet them. This fact should be kept in mind when comparing the FY20 graduation rates with prior years. The District is working with the FDOE to determine the impact of this on Palm Beach County. The District graduation rate is higher than the State's and increased by 3.1% from FY19 to FY20. District operated high schools exceeded the Board's Strategic Plan goal of 90% by posting a graduation rate of 94.4%. Table 1 reports the graduation rates for the five years (FY16-FY20) for Florida, the District, and the other large urban school districts. Table 2 shows the graduation rates for the five years (FY16-FY20) for Black, Hispanic, White, English Language Learners (ELL), Free or Reduced Lunch (FRL), and Students with Disabilities (SWD) students. Table 3 reports the graduation rates for the five years (FY16-FY20) for District operated and Charter schools. Tables 4-6 report graduation rates for District operated high schools, Charter high schools, and Alternative high schools, respectively, for five years (FY16-FY20). [For the report from the previous year "FY19 Federal High School Graduation Rates. Memorandum," see ED611688.]
