New Hanover County Schools Shows Improvement in Dropout Rates
State dropout rate increases


The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction released their Consolidated School Crime Data Report for the 2014-2015 school year. New Hanover County Schools’ dropout rate decreased slightly from last year from 2.88% to 2.82%.

“NHCS has fewer students dropping out of school and our rates improved while the state’s rate went up. We know we still have room for improvement, but we are headed in the right direction. The proposed CTE High School is just one of our dropout prevention strategies that will give students more options and opportunities for success,” said NHCS Superintendent Dr. Tim Markley.
