The Idaho State Department of Education released 2014-2015 graduation rate data from last February and the data showed Eastern Idaho graduation rates are improving.
According to the data Sugar-Salem School District had a 98 percent graduation rate, Ririe School District also shared a 98 percent graduation rate.
Idaho State Department of Education Sherri Ybarra recently said in a statement, “Policies, programs, laws and recommendations can provide guidance and support, but it is truly educators and students who are putting in the hard work to achieve a high school diploma, and as a result, increasing Idaho’s graduation rate.”
Sugar Salem School District Superintendent Alan Dunn said it’s not every day you get acknowledged for doing a good job.
“We are happy to hear that. We don’t always hear that we are doing well in this day and age. So it’s good to have some recognition for the things we are doing right,” Dunn said.
He adds, “We have had a high graduation rate for many years. But not every school district has a high graduation rate.”
