USD 286 Celebrates Post Secondary Success
Attached is the latest postsecondary data from KSDE. This data shows a five-year average in graduation rate (percentage of students graduating with their cohort), success average (percentage of graduates on track to receive college degrees or certificates within 5 years) and effective rate (graduation rate multiplied by success average).
I know many of you are more familiar with assessment data, like state assessments and ACT scores. Those indicators are an important measure, however, the faculty, staff, administration and BOE at USD 286, believe the true measure of a school is how successful our graduates are after they leave USD 286.
In the attachments, you will see the graduation rate, success average and effective rate for USD 286, as well as 13 other area schools. As you can see, we rank near the top in graduation rate and are at the top in both success rate and effective rate. While we believe this is a good starting point, we also understand the need to find more creative and innovative ways to ensure our students are successful after they leave USD 286 and to reach the state goals in graduation rate, effective rate and success rate.
