Area students are continuing to graduate on time.
Prince William County Public Schools’ (PWCS) on-time graduation rate has improved, according to a Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) report.
This year, 92.4 percent of students graduated when they were expected to, a 0.3 percent increase from 2018.
A release from Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) says it’s the 12th year in a row that the on-time graduation rate has risen.
PWCS also passed Virginia’s rate, which was 91.5 percent.
Superintendent Steve Walts attributed the increase to the efforts schools make to focus on student needs.
“This represents the amazing work of our teachers and staff beginning in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade,” Walts said in a release. “I congratulate our students and staff on their dedicated work.”
