DENVER — The Colorado Department of Education says the dropout rate for public school students is the lowest since 2003.

The department said Thursday the rate is now down for the seventh consecutive year. Officials say graduation rate increases were seen across nearly all racial and ethnic groups.

The department says many students are taking advantage of programs that give them more time to work toward a high school diploma.
