(Brockville) – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) graduation rate has increased from 80.7 per cent in 2013-14 to 82.3 per cent in 2014-15 according to an announcement made today by the Ministry of Education. The provincial average is 85.5 per cent.

The provincial data is calculated by tracking Grade 9 students over a five-year period. The UCDSB five-year graduation rate is a key indicator in demonstrating our commitment to all students and our communities.

“We are pleased to see an increase in this measure of student achievement by more than one per cent over last year’s UCDSB graduation rate,” says Director of Education Stephen Sliwa. “It is encouraging to see more of our students achieving their goal of earning their Ontario Secondary School Diploma, which will further their opportunities for success in the future.”

“The Upper Canada District School Board has set a goal of a 90 per cent graduation rate for our secondary school students by the year 2020,” says Chair Jeff McMillan. “These results remind us that we are moving closer to realizing this goal, thanks to the support of our school staff across the district, and through the encouragement and support of parents and guardians who are promoting among young people the importance of a secondary school education.”
