-A A +A

Suzette Cook, Reporter

Levy County School District’s graduation rate for the 2017-18 school year rose to 87 percent surpassing the State graduation rate of 86.1 percent.

Superintendent of Schools Jeffery R. Edison said the number of students graduating in Levy County fluctuates from year to year. School Board of Levy County recently prepared a total of 368 high school diplomas. Bronson Middle High School had 93, Cedar Key High School had 14, Chiefland Middle High School had 96 and Williston had 165 diplomas to award.

Edison attributes the increase in graduation rates to the strategies initiated by the overall mission of LCSD and the execution of a comprehensive countywide strategic plan.

“It’s a lot of hard work from our teachers and staff who focus on our kids that are not passing State tests,” he said. “It’s working with individual kids to make sure they have a plan to be successful.

“We have hired graduation coaches, they work with counselors and our kids are doing a better job.”
