Academic Achievement is performance on state-mandated testing. The school enjoyed a good testing season this past spring which is reflected in the APR. Subgroup achievement measures how well different student cohorts perform. We saw some significant growth in this area, suggesting we are doing a good job educating all of our kids regardless of whatchallenges they may have.
College and Career Ready implies, as the name suggests, how prepared kids are for the next step beyond high school. Attendance is the number of kids attending school regularly.
The District improved in many areas relative to the year before. 97.1% is a tremendous performance, and gives us something to honor and to aspire to this year and in subsequent years.
