DESE released Drop-out and Graduation Rate Data

Good Day,

  I would like to share with you some outstanding news!!!  Please see the attached DESE released Drop-out and Graduation Rate Data for our School and District.  I am pleased to note that we have decreased our Drop-out rate to 2.5%.

This is the lowest percentage in school and district history, and validates the work that we are all doing to keep students engaged in school.  Equally impressive is that our Graduation rate is at an all-time high of 82.8%!!!

I consider this a major accomplishment and a very timely reminder that when we create data based and student focused initiatives the sky is the limit. 

  “A good team is not always defined by wins and losses, but by the way it responds to adversity”.  I am confident that we will continue to take CCHS to new and unprecedented heights through a concerted effort to improve the

learning process for our students.

Thank you,
