Graduation rates for FY19 were announced today. School Superintendent Richard Woods said the overall rate was 82 percent, up 12 points from 2012. Meanwhile, Bleckley County’s graduation rates continue to lead all of Middle Georgia.

The 92.9 percent graduation rate is the highest in both the Heart of Georgia Regional Educational Service Agency as well as the Middle Georgia Regional Educational Service Agency.

Superintendent Steve Smith said in release, “I am so proud of our teachers and students who continue to excel both in the classroom and in extracurricular activities. Our staff and students strive for excellence in all aspects of their lives, and their hard work does not go unnoticed. We are extremely blessed to have supportive parents and a wonderful community who value education.

Every achievement, every success, and every recognition are the result of adults who care and pour themselves into our students every day. We endeavor to achieve a 100 percent graduation rate, because we want every student to succeed.”
