450 Latino students will graduate from Metro high schools in 2009; up from 250 in 2008

A record number of Latino students will graduate from Nashville's public high schools this year, according to Metro Nashville Public Schools’ Latino Parent Advisory Council (El Comité de Padres Latinos - COPLA).

The number of Latino graduates will be 450, which is 80% higher than last year's total of 250 (originally reported to be "more than 200").

In February, it was announced that Tennessee's Hispanic high schoolers are taking Advanced Placement exams in greater numbers.
