High School Graduation Rate

This indicator includes the high school graduation rates by district for the following districts with high schools within Champaign County: Champaign Community Unit School District #4, Fisher Community Unit School District #1, Mahomet-Seymour Community Unit School District #3, Rantoul Township High School District #193, St. Joseph-Ogden Community High School District #305, Tolono Community Unit School District #7, and Urbana School District #116.

Between 2010 and 2021, the graduation rates of the different districts fluctuated independently of each other, with no trend prevalent across the board. The Illinois Report Card states that there is a possible data impact on the 2020 and 2021 graduation rates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This could explain the uncharacteristically low graduation rate in Tolono District #7 in 2021 compared to previous years. However, the graduation rate in Champaign Unit #4 and Urbana District #116 increased from 2019 to 2021, and the graduation rate in St. Joseph-Ogden District #305 was the same in 2019 and 2021. High school graduation rates are an apt measure of pre-college academic achievement in the county, and provide context for the other indicators in the education category.

This data, along with a variety of other school district data, is available on the Illinois Report Card, an Illinois State Board of Education and Northern Illinois University website.
