Twin Rivers Graduation Rate Hits All-Time High

McClellan, CA— Record numbers of Twin Rivers Unified School District students are receiving their high school diplomas on time—84.4 percent of the class of 2016. The district’s graduation rate exceeds the state and county average for the second straight year, according to data from the California Department of Education.

Twin Rivers’ graduation rate has increased 9.1 percent since 2013. There are gains in every student population measured, including:

  • English learners at 84.1 percent; up 18.8 percent since 2013
  • Latino students at 84.8 percent; up 13.7 percent since 2013
  • African Americans at 80.6 percent; up 9.3 percent since 2013

“Our students, staff and families should feel a great sense of pride and accomplishment that more students than ever are graduating from Twin Rivers,” says Twin Rivers Superintendent Dr. Steve Martinez. “With the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) we are more creative and intentional in putting programs and services in place, resulting in significant gains for all students. Our progress is good and we will continue to improve.”

As the graduation rises, the dropout rate continues to decline. It’s now at 8.3 percent, down 8.1 percent since 2013. The district’s dropout rate is lower than the state and county average.
