CCSD’s five-year graduation rate improves

Students take advantage of additional opportunities to earn diploma

LAS VEGAS – 315 Clark County School District (CCSD) students from the Class of 2022 seized the opportunities offered by the District to continue their education and earn a high school diploma.

The CCSD five-year graduation rate increased from 81.3 percent to 82.5 percent for the Class of 2022.

“I am grateful for our students’ determination,” said Interim Superintendent Dr. Brenda Larsen-Mitchell. “I am also appreciative of the educators who supported them in their journey to earning a high school diploma.”

The Five-Year Graduation Rate reflects students who did not meet the requirements to graduate in four years and took advantage of opportunities offered by CCSD to earn a diploma in five years.

The Five-Year Graduation Rate is used by the Nevada Department of Education’s (NDE) Nevada School Performance Framework (NSPF) to measure graduation rates across the state. 29 CCSD high schools are projected to earn full points on the NSPF for this measure. 

Sierra Vista High School increased the five-year graduation rate from 81 percent to 90 percent, highlighting a 9 percentage point increase. Similarly, Indian Springs High School demonstrated a 14 percentage point increase to 100 percent.

Improvement was noted across all student groups, averaging a percentage point increase in graduation rates compared to the four-year graduation rates. 

The highest growth group was the Pacific Islander student group, with a 2.4 percent increase. The five-year Class of 2022 demonstrated a 1.2 percent increase compared to the four-year class.

This cohort overcame changes in the traditional educational landscape, including participating in nearly a full year of distance learning. 

The following CCSD schools achieved a 100 percent five-year graduation rate:

  • Indian Springs High School
  • Sandy Valley High School
  • College of Southern Nevada High School – East
  • College of Southern Nevada High School – South
