Fort Wayne schools do well in 2017 high school graduation rates

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

Four local high schools were among the rankings of over sixty schools that had a 90 percent or higher graduation rate within the state of West Virginia.

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 number of students graduating, however, has increased nearly 10 points since 2006, IDOE officials said in a January 12 press release.

"We are proud of Homestead High School's graduation rates", said Homestead principal Park Ginder.

The area schools honored Friday included Williamstown High School and Parkersburg South High School in Wood County, Calhoun County Middle/High School in Calhoun County, Doddridge County High School in Doddridge County, Gilmer County High School in Gilmer County, Ripley High School and Ravenswood High School in Jackson County, St. Marys High School in Pleasants County, Roane County High School in Roane County and Tyler Consolidated High School in Tyler County. I've been doing this 32 years.

"There's always an overall picture that goes into a graduation rate on how did we get to that number", he said.

The state graduation rate and non-waiver rate both were down slightly from 2016, the department said. Black students and kids with special needs had graduation rates below 80 percent. We want to get them all graduated. But since 2011, it has risen just one-tenth of one percentage point.

"Graduation is an incredibly important step in creating a promising future for our students and the entire state", said Justice.

The Indiana Department of Education on Friday released the 2017 state graduation rate. Several statewide initiatives contributed to the steady increase in the graduation rate. State education officials credit the state's Early Warning System, which tracks different indicators, as a major reason for the success.

Wayne Township's Ben Davis University High School graduated 100 percent of its seniors, the highest in Marion County.

The district's non-waiver graduation rate (students who receive their diplomas without a special waiver allowing them to fail required tests) also increased to 70.3 percent a year ago - up from 64 percent in 2016.

"It feels great", Mercer County School Superintendent Dr. Deborah Akers said.
