4J Graduation Rates Reach 10 Year High

Eugene School District 4J

Graduation rates in Eugene School District 4J have risen to a 10-year high, according to new information out Thursday from the Oregon Department of Education.

4J’s on-time, four-year graduation rate in 2019 was 77.8% – this is the highest since 2009. It’s also 3.4 percentage points higher than 2018, and closer to the statewide average of 80%, which is also a new high.

The D.O.E. also says some achievement gaps in 4J have narrowed.
