PRINEVILLE, OR -- Crook County School District officials are re-releasing graduation statistics after discovering an error in data submitted to the Oregon Department of Education.

Initially, Crook County High School's graduation rate was reported at less than 49%in 2014.  However, district officials said Tuesday students who were eligible to graduate but chose to participate in a 5th year program, should have been counted based on new state reporting standards.  Those students push the school's graduation rate to 79%, more than 7 points above the state average. 
The recalculation also increases Pioneer Alternative High School's rate by more than 8 points to 29%.  Recent changes in state reporting standards allow districts to include students who attend an extra year of high school in order to attend community college courses for free.
