The Wyoming Department of Education has released the 2009-2010 high school graduation rates. Both Sheridan County School District One and Two had a higher graduation rate then the previous year.
Only District Three was down, as their graduation rate dropped from 100% the previous year to 90% for 2009-2010. District Two jumped up three percentage points from 78% to 81%. District One improved from from 92% to 94%.
District Two Assistant Superintendent Tom Sachse says that it's been a team effort in raising the District's graduation rate.
District One Superintendent Sue Belish says the intimacy of their District is what aides them in having one of the highest graduation rates in the state.
Sachse explains that new methodology was used this year to calculate the graduation rates.
Belish stated that she doesn't necessarily agree with the way the rates are formulated.
The statewide graduation rate for 2009-2010 was 80%.
