  • 2017 graduation rate data mixed

  • MCS talks about ways to address the 2017 graduation rate drop
    Editor’s note: Below is a news release from Madison Consolidated Schools:

    The Indiana Department of Education recently released graduation rate data for the 2016-2017 class cohort. This data is compiled based on reporting provided by each school district throughout the state. The report follows each graduating class over four years and tracks indicators such as diploma type, on time graduation, students still in school, and the dropout rate.
