The Madison County High School graduation rate continues to rise.
The school system learned this past week that its four-year “cohort graduation rate” for 2014 is 82.1 percent.
“I believe this is the highest in school/system history,” said Madison County School Superintendent Allen McCannon. “We are very proud of all of the things that Madison County High School has done for students, and we acknowledge the important role that our elementary schools and middle school play in this success. Many teachers and staff members in grades K-12 have gone the extra mile to help students.”
The four-year cohort graduation rates for the past several years have been as follows: 2013, 78.1 percent; 2012, 74.4 percent; 2011, 77.8 percent.
“This graduation rate improvement is the result of your hard work and dedication,” said McCannon said in an email to teachers and staff. “Every employee plays a part in the graduation rate and should take great pride in the success of our students. Please share this good news the next time you hear anyone criticize educators, teachers, or our system. We are changing our culture. Education is important in Madison County. Our students are the real winners.”
