CTE Posts Stellar Graduation Rates

According to the 2017 Report of the US Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, the overall graduation rate at the College for Technical Education for full time degree/ certificate seeking students was 42%; this compares favorably to the Bluegrass Community and Technical College where the 2017 graduation rate was 19%. For African American students that compose 57% of the students at CTE the graduation rate was 42% and 11% for African American students at BCTCS.

Among the strategies used by CTE to improve graduation rates is a two-week cancellation period. During the cancellation period a student with an unexcused absence is removed from the school roles and is not counted as having been enrolled and thus does not owe tuition.
