An analysis by the Rocky Mountain News indicates the graduation rate in the Denver Public Schools system dropped from 33% for the Class of 2004 to 31% for the Class of 2005, with wide gaps persisting by ethnicity and gender. The newspaper found that although 32% of students in the Class of 2005 transferred to schools outside the district, their graduation rate is unknown, since neither DPS nor the state tracks students once they leave.
