Graduation Rates Exceed Provincial Average, Again!

May 09, 2017

We are extremely pleased to announce that our secondary school graduation rates once again exceeded the provincial average!

The LDCSB four-year graduation rate is 84.6% (provincial average: 79.6%).
The LDCSB five-year graduation rate is 89.8% (provincial average: 86.5%)

The rates for all school boards in Ontario are available on the Ministry of Education’s website.

“The credit for our success belongs to our teachers and administrators, both at the elementary and the secondary levels,” said Linda Staudt, Director of Education. “In working with our students, staff are ensuring that a variety of supports, programs and initiatives are in place, especially for those students who are potentially at risk. These include Dual Credit, Specialist High Skills Majors, Cooperative Education programs, and more. In addition, considerable effort has been focused on supporting our students at key transition points during their education, both from Grade 8 to Grade 9 as well as the transition from Grade 12, to either the workplace, an apprenticeship program, college or university.”
