Waukee CSD is proud to excel above the state average with a 2021 graduation rate of 98.3%, one of the highest in the state for a 4A district.
According to Superintendent, Dr. Brad Buck, “The graduation rate is a great reminder that all parts of the organization impact our students’ experiences and the end result of graduation. While we all want a 100% success rate, it’s worth taking a moment to appreciate the hard work behind these results from all of our staff. »
Iowa graduation rates are calculated using a formula established by the United States Department of Education. Unique student identification numbers allow school districts to account for all ninth-graders as they progress through high school. At the state level, the method helps determine when a student graduates, even if the student changed districts in Iowa while in high school.
