The Florida Department of Education has reported that the graduation rate for Sarasota County Schools for 2017-18 was 89.8 percent, up 4.1 percent from the previous school year. The district remained above the state graduation rate of 86.1 percent, which increased 3.8 percentage points from the previous year. The rising trend in graduation rates in schools throughout Sarasota County reflects the academic success the school district has achieved over the last year, including improved FSA test results and a four-percentage point increase in its overall district A-grade. The graduation rate is calculated by tracking the number of students who start in a school as ninth graders to the number in the same class who graduate four years later.
