Grad rates on the rise in Delta School District
More students in the Delta School District are graduating, according to a six-year trend published in the Superintendent’s Annual Report.
Over the past five years, the Delta District’s average six-year completion rate has been 86.2 per cent, compared to the provincial average of 80.9 per cent.
As well, Delta’s graduation rates for students with aboriginal ancestry is nearly five per cent above the provincial average of 59.4.
However, the report noted areas of focus are required for students deemed “at-risk” and with aboriginal ancestry. Intellectual engagement among Grade 10s also scored a low mark when compared to the national average.
The report is based on SD37’s new achievement contract for 2012-15.
