Good news from Colorado Dept of Higher Education

The latest release from the Colorado Dept of Higher Education shows that RE-1 graduates complete eleven more credit hours in their first year of college than the state average. They also have a 94.3% retention rate at 4-year institutions. Even more exciting, other data released in June 2016 reveals that the 2014 Caliche graduates have the 4th lowest remediation rates in the state, 6.7%, and Sterling High graduates remediation rates are lower than many charter schools at 18.18%.  The state average college remediation rates, for 2014 graduates, are 35.4%.  The state determines mediation rates based on the number of students enrolled in Colorado Colleges and Universities who must take remedial courses in order to perform at the college level. These classes do not count toward graduation.
