INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Department of Education revealed schools' 2019 graduation rates Tuesday with the state's average rate falling just slightly in two calculations.

The IDOE released two graduation rate indicators based on state and federal accountability calculations.

Indiana's overall state graduation rate for 2019 was 87.29% compared to 88.1% in 2018. Indiana's federal rate for 2019 was 86.46%, just down from 87.23% in 2018, according to an IDOE news release.

"Every day, school administrators and classroom teachers across our state dedicate themselves to academically preparing our students for success," Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick said in the release. "There is still work to be done, and the department will continue to commit its resources to local districts, working together to ensure our children graduate prepared for life beyond high school."

In Northwest Indiana, two districts received 100% state graduation rates, including Calumet New Tech High School in Gary and Morgan Township Middle-High School in east Porter County.

In Lake County, Crown Point High School saw a 2019 state graduation rate of 97.65% and Lake Central High School saw a 2019 rate of 95.40%.

Graduation rates increased at three of the School City of Hammond's four high schools. Gavit High School saw the greatest increase with an 89.43% rate in 2019, up nearly 9% from 2018.

West Side Leadership Academy saw the greatest drop in state graduation rates in the county with a 2019 rate of 58.51%, down more than 27% from the year before.
