The Baldwin County School District (BCSD) announced today an 84.8 percent graduation rate for the 2020-2021 school year exceeding the state of Georgia and showing continuous progress in the school district’s goal to see a greater percentage of students graduating from high school. The Baldwin County School District's graduation rate has increased by 19 percentage points since 2014.

“I am very proud to see that our graduation rate continues to outpace the state. The hard work of our students and faculty and staff in partnership with parents and community members is paying off,” stated Superintendent Dr. Noris Price. “The Class of 2021 was faced with unforeseen challenges due to COVID-19, but they met those challenges head-on with the determination to earn their high school diploma during a global pandemic,” Price added.

The Baldwin County School District will continue to take a comprehensive approach to ensure students graduate from high school with options. The focus on content mastery, dual enrollment, college and career pathways, flexible scheduling, and community partnerships have created learning opportunities that allow students to reach their goals and be successful in life.

Georgia’s graduation rate for 2021 is 83.7 percent. Georgia calculates a four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate as required by federal law as follows:

The number of students who graduate in four years with a regular high school diploma, divided by the number of students who form the adjusted cohort for the graduating class.
