Today the Oregon School Superintendent announced that one-third of last year's high school seniors did not graduate within four years. The report tracks students who first entered high school in 2006. It doesn't necessarily mean they dropped out; it just means they weren't able to graduate in four years. Bend La Pine School District spokesperson Julianne Repman says many schools in Central Oregon faired better than the statewide average. "Statewide about 66% of students are graduating in 4 years. Here at Bend La Pine Schools the average is higher its 73%. So we have students who are in situations where they might be working part time. They might have a medical emergency that's preventing them from graduating in four years, and we believe it’s important to get students to graduation no matter what situations they're faced with in life.  Sometimes it does take more than 4 years.” The lowest four year graduation rate in Central Oregon was in Redmond; the rate was just 46% for Redmond High School. In Madras, the rate was 57% and in Prineville, the best Central Oregon tally was at Crook County High School, where almost 89% of the students graduated in four years.
