The Boca Ciega High Has Fewer Students At Risk This Year



“The” Boca Ciega High School, as Principal Michael Vigue calls it, reports better student performance for the first grading period of the school year. According to Principal Vigue, 87% of students improved their behavior, 56% improved their attendance and 52% improved their grades over last year.
 

Attendance, behavior and grades are the three factors that contribute to whether or not the school system considers a student “at risk” for dropping out of school. Students who miss more than 10% of school days, have more than five behavior-related referrals to the school office, or have a lower than 2.0 (C) average have a greater chance of not finishing high school.
 

“Our collective efforts of monitoring, advisement, and goal setting with our students is continuing to help our students perform better,” Principal Vigue said.
