Education is one of the strongest factors that impacts a person’s economic, health, and overall well-being. The education sector addresses education at all levels:
- early childhood education
- elementary school
- middle school
- high school
- post-secondary education
Key concepts in education include Academic Success (in elementary, middle, and high school) and Educational Attainment. Within both of these concepts, Forsyth Futures tracks several measures for key outcomes to gauge progress in Forsyth County. Within Academic Success, Forsyth Futures tracks outcomes in Early Childhood Literacy, Reading Proficiency, Math Proficiency, Preparation for College or Career, and High School Graduation. Within Educational Attainment, the Post-Secondary Completion outcome is tracked.
Several concepts contribute to both Academic Success and Educational Attainment, including neighborhood and family factors, social and emotional skills, health and wellness, enrichment and engagement, and academic behaviors. Data for measures of contributing factors will be made available as additional community need is expressed.
