February 12 | LA School Report

By Craig Clough

LA Unified’s graduation crisis is hitting every local district and nearly every large high school, from the San Fernando Valley to the South Bay, and from East LA to the Westside.

Recent internal progress reports obtained by LA School Report show only 54 percent of seniors are currently on track to meet their “A through G” course requirements for graduation, but the reports also show the problem is spread throughout the district, as 55 of its 59 traditional high schools with more than 200 students show a projected graduation rate behind last year’s districtwide rate of 74 percent.
