The Pilot Rock School District’s graduation rate for the 2021-22 is 95.45 percent – 14 points higher than the statewide rate of 81.3 percent.
The data comes from the Oregon Department of Education which this morning released statewide graduation rate data for the Class of 2022.
This is for the four-year cohort (students who began their high school career in 2018-19 and earned their diploma in four years). Pilot Rock’s 2021-22 graduation rate is more than 12 percentage points higher than the previous year’s 20-21 rate of 82.76 percent for the district.
Across the country, students graduating in 2022 experienced interruptions to their learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Superintendent Troy Jerome said the district’s positive graduation rate indicates the resilience of the students from the Class of 2022, as well as the tenacity and work by teachers and staff to support the students.
“We also know that successful learning in high school is embedded in our entire K-12 system – the foundation in elementary and middle school is crucial to getting our high school seniors across the finish line at the end of their 13-year school careers,” Jerome said.
