Two high schools recognized for improving graduation rates

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany and Monroe High schools are among the top in the state for their jump in the percentage of students turning their tassels.

Since 2011 Albany High increased its graduation rate by 41% and Monroe High by 31%.
 Superintendent  Dr. David Mosely says improving graduation rates has been a goal of his since he began working for the school system.

"I'm very proud of the work that went into this and it was an effort by a lot of people that gave their best. And also I've got to commend our youngsters for stepping up to the plate and doing their part. It's a two way street, the teachers got to teach, but the youngsters have to do their part too."

An education magazine recently featured the accomplishments.  Mosely says the goal for all high schools is a 90% graduation rate.  The data for the 2014-2015 school year is still being tabulated.
