Pinellas graduation rates, school by school



This week's story about the latest high school graduation rates didn't include a school-by-school list, but you can find the numbers for Pinellas in the attachment below. The biggest year-to-year jumps were at Pinellas Park High (up 10.95 percent), Largo High (up 8.75 percent) and Dunedin High (up 8.11 percent).

Keep in mind: These rates are based on the current graduation rate formula, which discounts thousands of students who transfer into adult education programs. The rates are expected to drop a lot next year when Florida and every other state switches to a new, tougher, federal formula.
