2016-2017 Graduation Rates Released
The California Department of Education has released Sacramento City Unified School District’s graduation, dropout and A-G completion rates for the 2016-17 cohort. In our district the graduation rate increased by 0.5 percent, from 81.4 to 81.9 percent.
Sharing this information with our families is important. This information represents three performance indicators used to measure the academic success of students in our schools. For more information about what each of these numbers mean, please refer to the following links:

Families should be aware that the information released by the state does not account for students who graduated in June 2018.
