The Georgia Department of Education has announced the 2022 4-year cohort graduation rates and Tift County has once again exceeded their goal by obtaining an all time high rate of 93.5%. This is a 2.13 percentage point increase over last year's rate of 91.37%. Georgia's high school graduation rate also increased to an all time high of 84.1%, up from the 2021 rate of 83.7%.
According to the Georgia Department of Education, "Graduation Rate measures whether students are graduating from high school with a regular diploma in four or five years. This component includes both the four- and five-year adjusted cohort graduation rates and is only applicable to high schools."
Georgia calculates a four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate as required by federal law. This rate is:
- The number of students who graduate in four years with a regular high school diploma, divided by
- The number of students who form the adjusted cohort for the graduating class
The credit for this success goes not only to the staff at Tift County High School but to all employees of Tift County Schools. This combined effort is a testament to our Relentless Pursuit of a Culture of Excellence. #4theT
