   FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky's public high school graduation rates are up slightly.

   The state Department of Education says the rate for the 2010-11 school year was 78 percent, up from 76.7 percent the previous year. The 2010-11 figures are the latest available.

   There were similar increases in rates for male, female, white and African-American students. The rate for Hispanic students, however, jumped to 83.6 percent from 74.7 percent in 2009-10. For Asian students, the rate fell slightly, from 100 percent to 98.1.

   The rate measures how many students received a four-year diploma using an average of ninth- and 10th-grade enrollment and includes students with disabilities who were allowed to obtain a diploma in more than four years.

   Four schools had rates of 100 percent: August Independent, Beechwood, Burgin and Fairview. Individual rates are available at http://bit.ly/QGbZi5 .
