The graduation rates of the different districts fluctuate independently of each other; there is no trend, individually or among all the districts, that is prevalent enough to draw any conclusions from.

 

Why is this important?/Why did we include it in our set of indicators?

High school graduation rates are an apt measure of pre-college academic achievement in the county, and provide context for the other indicators in the education category.

 

Where did we get the data, and how often is it released?

This data, along with a variety of other school district data, is available on the Illinois Report Card, an Illinois State Board of Education and Northern Illinois University website.
