A data report for students’ proficiency in reading and math was presented at last night’s Washington School Board meeting by board member Stephanie Ellingson. At Stewart, students surpassed the goal of 75-percent proficiency in reading comprehension with a mark of nearly 82-percent; in math, students demonstrated 92-percent proficiency. At Lincoln, for all grades, 62-percent of students showed proficiency in reading comprehension and in math 61-percent were proficient. Washington High School students, in ninth, tenth and eleventh grades, aimed to meet the No Child Left Behind target of 90-percent. At the high school, the goal for reading proficiency was missed by seven students for a reading comprehension mark of 88.3-percent. In math, 91-percent were proficient or demonstrated one year’s growth.
At this time, data for the middle school is unofficial.
