Celebrating Success: The Class of 2019

(May 17, 2019) -- Regular attendance is an important part of college and career readiness. We are pleased to report that seniors in the St. Joseph School District have met this standard at a high level during the 2018-19 school year.


  • At Benton, 85.6% of seniors attended school 90% or more. This represents a 12.7% increase compared to last year's senior attendance rate.
  • At Central, 90% of seniors attended school 90% or more. This represents a 2.5% increase compared to last year's senior attendance rate.
  • At Lafayette, 79.8% of seniors attended school 90% or more. This represents a 15% increase compared to last year's senior attendance rate.

These percentages reflect the highest rate of proportional attendance for seniors in St. Joseph since DESE began tracking attendance at the individual student level in 2013-14. Congratulations seniors! We are proud of your leadership in the classroom and look forward to following your success as you begin your post-secondary journey.
