We have now received our statewide report on Post Secondary status of students over the past 5 years. I believe this is some of the most important data we can find to indicate our successes or failures. The data looks at all graduates of NFV and their status in post secondary education, up to and including successful awards of diplomas or certificates. Here is our data:
Of course this is only important if you have something to compare it to, like statewide data:
For the most part it looks like NFV graduates are outperforming our state averages. Check the 5 years of graduates earning awards over the 5 years, statewide (bottom grey on columns) to the NFV graduates earning awards (light blue bar on the far right. Not only are we above the state average for awards, but more of our students are enrolling in post-secondary programs. This includes community colleges, 4 year universities and other certificate bearing education opportunities. This is going in the right direction for us, and we hope to be able to improve these numbers every year.
Our enrollment in remedial classes is not great, however we remain close to the state average, which is lower than the averages of all our neighboring states.
