SDPC is thrilled to announce that the Class of 2020 set a new high for our four-year, on-time high school graduation rate with 87.7%!

 

2020 marks the 8th year in a row that SDPC's graduation rate has risen. In 2007, SDPC's board of trustees began a dedicated effort to improve SDPC's graduation rate, which at the time was 66.7%. In addition to district achieving the highest graduation rate in our history, each of our four high schools set a new high as well.

 

"Our journey from 66.7% to 87.7% has created a new environment in our county, which will continue to transform the lives of the customers we serve," said Dr. Danny Merck, SDPC Superintendent.

 

SDPC also outpaced the statewide graduation rate of 82.1%.
