CCSD Class of 2022 elevates graduation rate

The Clark County School District (CCSD) final graduation rate for the Class of 2022 increased to 81.3 percent from 80.9 percent the previous year, according to final data compiled by the Nevada Department of Education.

“These results are a testament to the hard work of our teachers, support professionals and administrators throughout the pandemic to ensure our students received a high-quality education,” said CCSD Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara. “Our top priority is to ensure that all students graduate college and career ready. As we continue working to improve academic outcomes, we will see improved graduation rates as a result.

Hispanic/Latino students saw a year-over-year improvement with the graduation rate increasing by 1.18 percent in 2021-2022. Additionally, the increase in the graduation rate is also reflected in the number of graduates, as the Class of 2022 was CCSD’s largest ever, with 25,212 graduates.

The percentage of Black/African American and Hispanic/Latino students earning a College & Career Ready Diploma increased from 14.6% to 16.3% (Black/African American students) and from 22.5% to 23.2% (Hispanic/Latino students).

“CCSD has emerged from the pandemic with a plan to accelerate student learning and the increasing graduation rate is a sign that those efforts are working,” said CCSD Board of School Trustees President Irene A. Cepeda. “I am extremely proud of the diligent work happening in our schools every day by our educators, which is showcased in the increase in graduation rate this year.”
