Reynolds' measures for student achievement are provided below.  These measures are drawn from Reynolds 2022 "Pathways to Prosperity", Complete 2021 – the Strategic Plan of Virginia's Community Colleges, and Reynolds' mission.

  Graduation
    Awards and Degrees
    Advance College Academy (ACA) Graduates

About the Metrics:

Many of the metrics have established baseline and target values. The baselines were based on 2014-15 actual values and targets were set as part of our strategic planning. Projected values were set for many of the metrics to establish yearly goals as opposed to the targets which were established as the cumulative 6-year goals.
