The State Department of Education released district level achievement data taken from last spring’s assessments for grades 3-high school. CMCSS remained in the same category as last year, in Need of Improvement. The purpose of these assessments is to provide feedback and they are only one snapshot of what students know. We use this data in addition to daily classroom data to improve classroom instruction and learning opportunities for students. Understanding where there are needs creates opportunities for professional development for teachers and affords students opportunities to learn the information in a more meaningful manner.
