Colorado’s Dropout Rate Declines

New information released by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) shows that the state’s high school dropout rate has decreased and is at its lowest point since 2003.  The graduation rate for the class of 2013 was 76.9%, a 1.5% increase from 2012.  Additionally graduation rates have increased among nearly all races and ethnic groups.  CDE has just released two infographics (links below) along with an interactive website giving these statistics.  For more information, visit the CDE’s general Dropout Statistics and Graduation Statistics pages, or visit our library’s web catalog to search for more resources from CDE and other state agencies.
