In an effort to more meaningfully measure student success, Paladin, in Blaine, has implemented a research-based graduation metric that takes into account the realities of high student mobility and credit deficiency while still challenging students to complete their high school credits in a timely manner. This 1-year graduation rate calculation differs from the traditional 4-, 5-, 6- and 7-year graduation rates calculated by MDE in that it disregards a student’s assigned graduation year and instead is calculated based on their rate of credit completion in their final year of high school.
