New York City’s graduation rate continued its forward march in 2017, hitting a new high of 74.3 percent, officials announced Wednesday.

Mayor Bill de Blasio seized on the 1.2 percentage point increase — and a reduction in the dropout rate to 7.8 percent — as proof that his education agenda is paying off.

“We see constant progress across the board,” he said during a celebratory press conference.

Note: Some schools’ rates are not included because the state does not release data for categories involving fewer than five students due to federal privacy laws.

Correction: Because of an editing error, a previous version of this story incorrectly attributed a different quote to Mayor Bill de Blasio. The quote, which has been replaced, was said by City Councilman Mark Treyger.
