Kentucky Performance Rating for Education Progress (K-PREP) Scores Released

The Kentucky Department of Education released information that helps gauge how well our school is doing in our effort to help every student master the skills they will need to excel in our increasingly global society.  Test score reports for individual students will not be available for at least another month.  As soon as we have those, we will share them with families of the children who took state tests last spring (our current 4th and 5th graders).  According to the data released today, our school received a score of 73.5 on the state’s “Unbridled Learning” accountability system, which means we scored in the 86th percentile of all elementary schools in the state!  Our school is rated Proficient/Progressing.  We are very proud of the progress our students and staff are making since the Unbridled Learning accountability system began.  In three years, we have maintained our position as a proficient school, but also one that is progressing.  That means that we are a school that is continuously improving, and ensuring our school is growing stronger every year.  For more information from our acting principal, Mr. Davis please see the attached letter.
