Educational Attainment: Western Region

In order for our state to achieve our educational attainment goal, we need YOU and our entire education-to-workforce continuum to be aware of the data and working together towards our state’s goal of #2Millionby2030. This 3-minute video below is WHY we must do something different. Did you know only 29 of 100 Western ninth graders complete a credential or degree within 6 years of graduating high school?

myFutureNC introduced the new 2024 Attainment Profiles for each county and added new profiles including Prosperity Zone Profiles, Councils of Government (COGs) Profiles, Workforce Development Board (WDBs) Profiles, Charter School Profiles, and District/City School Profiles.
