Utah Inflated Its High School Graduation Rate, Federal Watchdog Finds


December 3, 2018

Utah artificially inflated its 2014-15 high school graduation rate by 1.3 points, and doesn't have a good enough system to guarantee the public that it is correctly calculating and reporting that key indicator of high school success, according to a new report by a federal watchdog agency.

The audit by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of the Inspector General found that Utah's "system of internal control did not provide reasonable assurance that reported graduation rates were accurate and complete." Its oversight didn't catch mistakes in the calculations submitted by its local districts, the audit, released Nov. 27, said.
