Superintendent A. Russell Hughes shares his February 2023 Monthly Update. January was an incredible month for the Walton County School District. FLDOE released their graduation data ranking WCSD third in the state for student graduation rate. Walton County Schools boasted a 96.7% graduation rate - a 5% increase over the previous year - and a 20% increase since Superitendent Hughes took office. The Florida Policy Institute, a non-profit organization that uses data to inform policy reform, ranked YOUR Walton County School District NUMBER ONE in education in the ENTIRE state of Florida. WOW! Two students received nominations from Congressman Matt Gaetz for military academy acceptance and the District broke ground for the new Freeport Middle School and cut the ribbon on the Freeport Elementary School addition.
