Clay County Schools Named in North Carolina’s Top 10 for Graduation Rate

December 5, 2019

The Clay County Board of Education recently announced good news—Clay County High School “was named in North Carolina’s Top 10 for graduation rate at 93.6 percent, up from 86 percent.” Meanwhile, at Hayesville Elementary School, “reading proficiency levels met or exceeded the state average across all grades and the school exceeded growth last year,” and “math proficiency levels far exceeded the state averages in all grades.” A local middle school “met growth as a school” and met or exceeded state averages for overall math proficiency; however, it failed to meet the state average for reading proficiency. Both schools were included on the list of schools targeted for support under North Carolina’s Every Student Succeeds Act Plan.
