Medford School District reports increase in graduation rate

Medford, Ore. — The Medford School District is reporting an increase in its graduation rate.
In the last three years, the district has seen a 13-percent increase. Recently released data shows the district saw a one-percent increase in 2017, bringing the rate up to 78-percent.

District representative Natalie Hurd says options like online courses, college credit and funding, as well as trade school learning are helping to bridge the gap.

“We want to reach 90-percent graduation rate by 2020,” Hurd said. “That’s why we’re implementing some of these personalized learning tools and innovative programs to make sure that we can meet every kid where they’re at.”

The District has also seen an graduation rate increase of 25-percent among students with disabilities in the last two years.
