The Morrow County School District graduation rate for the 2021-22 year was 96.32 percent, 15 points higher than the state average.
The numbers come from the Oregon Department of Education which released graduation rates for the 2021-22 graduating class.
Over the past decade MCSD has seen continual growth in graduation rates going from 76 percent in 2011-12 to over 96 percentr 2021-22. T
In addition, MCSD saw growth in almost every other four-year cohort rate, including Hispanic/Latino students, economically disadvantaged, migrant, students with disabilities and CTE participants were above 955 percent.
For the graduating class of 2022 in particular, it is important to highlight that these families were dealt the tremendous challenge of learning during COVID restrictions for over half of their high school career. Superintendent Matt Combe credits the dedicated school staff, educational partners, and families in the ongoing success of our students.
“We are very proud of MCSD students and the determination they continue to display to ensure they make it to graduation day,” Combe said.
