Sarasota County Schools Announces Graduation Rate

January 26, 2024 – The Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) reported this week that the high school graduation rate for Sarasota County Schools for 2022-23 was 90.3 percent, an increase from the prior school year. The district remained above the state graduation rate of 88.0 percent; the state graduation rate increased by 0.7 percentage points over the 2021-22 school year.

Per the FLDOE, the 2022–23 high school graduation rate represents the highest rate ever, with the exception of the pandemic school years 2019–20 and 2020–21, in which graduating classes were exempt from statewide, standardized assessment requirements stipulated in state law. The FLDOE calculates the graduation rate by tracking the number of students who start in a school as ninth graders to the number in the same class who graduate four years later. Individual traditional public school and charter school results are displayed in the table below.
