Lee Schools: Graduation rate hits highest level

West Virginia's 'exemplary' high school graduation rate recognized

West Virginia's 'exemplary' high school graduation rate recognized

Last year, 87.2 percent of students in the state's 2016-2017 cohort graduated from high school in four years, down about two percentage points from 2016.

Bonnell said the 2017 graduation rate may increase as he has to contact IDOE officials to fix some data issues that should've been resolved in an earlier appeals process.

"Our schools are committed to the academic success of our students", said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. The number of students graduating, however, has increased nearly 10 points since 2006, IDOE officials said in a January 12 press release.

Northwest Allen's Carroll High School managed a graduation rate of 98.8 percent, ahead of Southwest Allen County Schools' Homestead High School's 96.13 percent. Beech Grove Schools, which enrolls just over 3,000 students, made the biggest jump of any district in the county, increasing 8 percentage points to 95 percent.

At the district level, Franklin Township had the highest graduation rate (97 percent). Both schools dropped about three points from the previous year. "It's a team effort between teacher's, parents and the Mercer County School Board". The improvement significantly narrowed the gap between the district and the state average.

Officials gathered in Charleston Friday to recognize almost 70 schools from throughout the state which had graduation rates of 90 percent or higher for the 2016-17 school year. The only campus with a substantially higher graduation rate that will remain open is Arsenal Technical High School. The non-waiver graduation rate counts only the students who completed all graduation requirements. "We are very glad our students are seeing the importance of graduation".

Several area high schools were honored Friday by the West Virginia Department of Education for having exemplary graduation rates.

FWCS' graduation rate was a few tenths of a percent lower in 2017 at 88.95 percent, and the non-waiver rate was down 2 percentage points to 76.6 percent.

Pioneer High School's graduation rate for 2017 was 86.3 percent.
