Reports Chalkbeat, “Across all high schools run by Indianapolis Public Schools, 71 percent of freshmen were on track to graduate in 2022, compared to 59 percent in 2021.

According to the article by Aleksandra Appleton, “Some of the biggest gains happened at Crispus Attucks and George Washington high schools, which each reported an increase of 20 percentage points for on-track rates compared to last year. Around 77 percent of Crispus Attucks freshmen and 75 percent of George Washington freshmen were on track to graduate in the most recent data.

The district credited a series of new policies for the gains, including new teams of freshmen and sophomore teachers who could intervene when students were struggling, extra in-class and out-of-class support, as well as the district’s new grading policy implemented in 2020, which sets the minimum grade a student can receive at 50 percent.”
