Superintendent Statement on 2021–22 Graduation Rate
Flagler Schools Superintendent Cathy Mittelstadt says she is “encouraged” by the District’s 2021–22 Graduation Rate, released by the Florida Department of Education this morning.
“I look at the pre-pandemic and post-pandemic results,” says Mittelstadt. “The fact that our students have been able to exceed the state average in the face of all the challenges is a credit to them, our teachers, and administrators.”
The graduation rate for the Class of 2022 in Flagler County was 91%, which is the same as the previous year. However, that is a three-point increase from five years ago. The state average for the 2021–22 class was 87%. That’s just a one-point increase from five years ago.
Superintendent Mittelstadt adds, “We should be proud of the work to get our district in this position. But we cannot rest now. This is a great first step as we continue to elevate excellence and create one of the top school districts in the state.”
