Catahoula Parish School District’s High School Graduation Rate Ranked Second in State for Growth
The number of students graduating annually from Louisiana high schools has remained steady and more students than ever before are earning college credit and credentials valid in high-wage industries, according to results released last week by the Louisiana Department of Education. The results also highlighted recent gains made by Louisiana graduates in earning eligibility for the Taylor Opportunity Program for Students, or TOPS, and in completing forms to register for federal financial aid.
The long-term gains come amidst a five-year push by Louisiana schools to increase not only the number of annual college graduates but also the number of graduates earning employer-validated "Jump Start" credentials and early college credits through programs such as dual enrollment and College Level Examination Program (CLEP).
Catahoula Parish School District is pleased to announce that they are ranked second in the state in growth of the cohort graduation rate with an increase of 13.4 percentage points over the previous year. “We are proud of the hard work of our students, faculty, and parents with the improved cohort graduation rate,” Dr. Gwile Paul Freeman, Superintendent, said. Furthermore, Catahoula Parish School District is ranked second in the state in students’ submission of FAFSA (financial aid). “We are appreciative of the efforts of all stakeholders in the achievement of these accomplishments,” Dr. Freeman added.
