Graduation rates down at CCSD

Nicole Jordan

Graduation data for the 2022-23 school year released by the Georgia Department of Education today showed declines in graduation rates for Clarke County School Districts.

The district saw a decrease in both its number of students who graduated in four years with a regular high school diploma, which dropped 1% down to 75.4, as well as the percentage of students who graduated after four or five years of high school, which fell from 78.3% in 2021-22 to 77% in 2022-23. The district's four-year rate lagged behind the state rate of 84.4%.

CSSD Superintendent, Dr. Robbie Hooker, says the district intends to make “significant progress” in changing the trajectory of graduation outcomes through yearly action plans aimed at improving student performance and graduation rates across all subgroups.
