Webinar: A Primer on High School Graduation Rates

September 20, 2010

Youth advocates have long sought ways to track individual students’ progress through high school graduation, so we can get more accurate assessments of graduation rates and to provide timely help to struggling students. The Alliance for Excellent Education reports that for the first time, states will be required to report exactly how many students graduate on time with a regular diploma at the end of the 2010–11 school year. The next year schools will have to report on their efforts to improve students’ success.

To learn more about the new reporting requirements for high school
graduation rates, as well as some of the policies that states have put
into place, check out the Alliance for Education's interactive webinar on education reform. It included a short presentation by Gov.
Wise, followed by a question and answer session during which Gov. Wise
answered questions submitted by viewers. The video and materials are online.
