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 2020, 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 graduation rates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the graduation rate in four of the seven districts was higher in 2020 than in 2019. 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.
