With preliminary data now available for Cohort 2015 (students who began high school in 2011-2012), the Irving ISD reports that it appears its graduation rate will be at 93.4 percent, the highest rate in school district history.
Records show it’s been this high only one other time, 24 years ago in 1991 (when students earning GEDs did not count as dropouts). This projection is based on preliminary data available for graduation rates of Cohort 2015, the most recent four-year cohort. In addition, projections indicate that the Irving ISD graduation rate will be higher than the region and state average for the first time in 10 years.
In addition to the number of graduates increasing, the dropout rate in Irving ISD has simultaneously dropped across the district. As a system, the dropout rate is projected to be nearly cut in half, dropping from 6.9 percent in 2014 to 3.5 percent for 2015. For Irving ISD, this equates to lowering the number of dropouts from 150 students to only 76 students.
