"More kids in New York City graduated high school in four years than ever before".

Likewise, students with disabilities continued to graduate at far lower rates than their nondisabled peers, with only 46.7% earning diplomas by August 2017.

More than 80 percent of the Island's 4,631 cohort in 2017 graduated last year - a less than 1 percent jump from last year. Schenectady High School registered a 70 percent graduation rate for students who started school in 2012 and graduated after 5 years. Meanwhile, the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) recently adopted by the State Education Department will allow us to account for student success on a more granular level.

A record number of seniors graduated from city high schools previous year, Mayor de Blasio said Wednesday. "Lynbrook High School is a special place for our students and we are thrilled to be recognized for our efforts".

The Rochester City School district saw its graduation rate improve in 2017, according to a report released on Wednesday by the New York State Education Department.

The West Ada School District, Idaho's largest district, has a 84.7 percent graduation.

Here's the first full trailer for 'Solo
The film's other stars , Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson , also made an appearance in the teaser. Like Rogue One , this movie isn't obliged to conform to the style of the core Star Wars saga.


"Our graduation and dropout rates continue to improve steadily and show that we're on the right track", Farina said in a prepared statement.

The NEB works toward improving academic outcomes and graduation rates from both ends of the educational continuum. Additionally, Extended Learning Time Programs, Summer School options, and Community School Saturday Academies - through a strong partnership with Say Yes Buffalo - all serve to build a culture of success and increase learning for a child from pre-school into high school. The Idaho Distance Education Academy posted the highest rate among virtual schools, at 75.5 percent.

"In his eight years in office, Governor Cuomo has done nothing to address the growing opportunity gap that leads to outcome disparities", said Jasmine Gripper, legislative director, Alliance for Quality Education.

Dropout rates also hit a historic low past year, dipping by 0.6 points to 7.8 percent citywide.

Any school with a graduation rate less than 67 percent - based on either its four-year, five-year or six-year rates - will automatically be classified as needing state intervention.

"If we are going to make NY City the fairest big city in America, it starts with giving our kids the education we deserve, and we are executing that vision every day", de Blasio said.
