The Path to 70% Credential Attainment

REPORT: An estimated 40% of students from Washington’s high school class of 2015 will complete a postsecondary credential – such as a degree, apprenticeship, or certificate – by age 26, according to a new report from Washington Roundtable and Partnership for Learning.

That number is up nine points from a reported 31% for the high school class of 2006. Washington is making progress in improving its credential attainment rate, though not fast enough. The state must more than double the average annual growth rate in credential attainment among its students to hit a 70% credential attainment goal set for the high school class of 2030.
