Canajoharie High School graduation rate at 92
The five-year graduation rate at Canajoharie High
School increased to 92 percent, according to the recently released
2015-16 state school report card. The school’s previous five-year
graduation rate was 84 percent.
“It is important to note that the district
consciously plans for some students to graduate in five years and we
continue to support them as they work to achieve their high school
diploma,” Superintendent Deborah Grimshaw said.
According to the school report card, districtwide
enrollment continues to decline, in line with the projections
offered in a Future Options Study commissioned by the Board of
Education in 2015. Canajoharie enrollment stands at 905 students,
according to the data. Increasing in the district is the percentage
of students who are economically disadvantaged. The percentage of
those students increased to 55 percent across the district, up from
51 percent the previous year.
According to the report card, the district did
not meet Adequate Yearly Progress for the 3-8 assessments as a
result of not having a 95 percent participation rate during the
tests. While it is not consistent across all the assessments, in
certain grade levels some student subgroups who participated in the
assessment met the target performance index.
Overall assessment results indicate that the
subgroups of economically disadvantaged students and students with
disabilities continue to be an area in need of improvement at the
building and district levels.
