MANCHESTER - High School students across the state are getting ready to graduate in June, and educators hope this year's graduation rate will follow last year's trend.
Last year in Manchester fewer than 3% dropped out before graduation, an improvement from the 2012-13 school year where the number was more than 4%.
Statewide, the numbers have improved dramatically in the last 15 years. In 2001, more than 5 percent of students weren't graduating. The numbers slowly went down through the years. In 2010, the statewide rate dropped to 1%. In 2010, the state changed the dropout age from 16 to 18 and saw results immediately.
