In 2020-21, Colorado’s on-time graduation rate fell slightly for the first time in more than a decade, with 81.7% of students graduating within four years. Although the overall decline was small, it was concentrated among students who identify as American Indian/Alaska Native, Hispanic/Latino, two or more races, and Black/African American. These students have historically faced more barriers to educational opportunity in our state and were likely hit hardest by the impacts of the pandemic.
