Fayetteville, NC – According to data released by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Wednesday morning, Cumberland County Schools’ (CCS) graduation rate increased by 1.7 points to 83.7% for the 2018-2019 school year, which is the highest graduation rate in CCS’ history. Cross Creek Early College, Cumberland International Early College, Cumberland Polytechnic High and Reid Ross Classical High each had 100% graduation rates.

Districtwide, proficiency measures for Grade 8 English-Language Arts, Grades 6-8 Math, Grades 5 and 8 Science, and Biology showed increases, many of which are above the state average. CCS experienced a decline in Grades 3-5 English-Language Arts, Grades 3-5 Math, Grades 6 and 7 English-Language Arts, English II and Math I. Math I scores were impacted by the new rules that no longer apply banked scores from the middle schools. Even with the decline across the state, CCS Math I scores are above the state average.
