Vargas projects an increase in grad rate

Posted By on Fri, Sep 26, 2014 at 9:31 AM

Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas says that the district is projecting a 50.5 percent graduation rate for the 2010 cohort — meaning students who started high school in 2010. 

The 2010 group is the first required by the state to pass all Regents exams in order to graduate. These students will have also worked through the controversial new Common Core curriculum. 

Though good news, Vargas says, no one should be satisfied with these results. But the needle is moving in the right direction, he says.
