West Liberty School District student achievement results are now available in document form on the school district website.
To gather these reports, data from the school’s district was uploaded to the Iowa Department of Education’s website. Data was analyzed. Superintendent Steve Hanson said the Annual Progress Report (APR) shows whether or not the district has met last year’s expectations under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).
“Since NCLB expects all students to be proficient in reading and math by 2014, the targets for 2012 were pretty high,” Hanson said. “Our school district did not meet the expected targets.”
The APR reported the following 2011-2012 proficiencies in reading and math: third grade, 65.9 percent reading, 62.2 percent math; fourth grade, 74.5 reading, 75.6 math; fifth grade, 64.5 reading, 73.1 math; sixth grade, 51.5 reading, 61.2 math; seventh grade, 61.5 reading, 83.3 math; eighth grade, 65 reading, 78.8 math; 11th grade, 80.3 reading, 73.1 math.
Also stated on the document are the district’s annual goals for next year.
