INDIANAPOLIS The Indiana Department of Education released graduation rate data Wednesday for the 2012-2013 school year.

The data show that the state’s non-waiver graduation rate was 81.72%, up from 80.46% in 2012.

The overall graduation rate for all schools was 88.6%, virtually unchanged from the prior year’s rate of 88.7%.

Non-waiver data is important for providing a fuller picture of the number of students who are successfully passing their end of course assessments.

In addition to releasing statewide data, the Department released graduation rate by school and school corporation, public and non-public schools, as well as graduation rate by race and ethnicity.

“There is some encouraging information in this release,” said Glenda Ritz, Indiana’s Superintendent of Public Instruction. “While the overall graduation rate is largely the same as it was in 2012, when you dig into the data it becomes clear that more of our students are graduating without a waiver and passing their end of course assessments. This is a crucial step in ensuring that our students graduate from high school both college and career ready.”
