ANDERSON—Anderson School District One received high marks on the state’s new Accountability System for 2012.
Anderson One’s rating was an A with the highest numerical score in the state. Each school district was graded based on elementary and middle ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies proficiencies on standardized tests and the percent of students that tested.
The high school score came from the four content subjects, percent tested and graduation rate. The new system replaced No Child Left Behind and Adequate Yearly Progress rating systems.
“We are pleased with the results of our efforts for 2012. Anderson One continues to score among the top in the state,” said Dr. Wayne Fowler, Superintendent. “The administration, teachers, students and parents are to be commended for their role in this rating.”
Elementary Director Jane Harrison says the recognition comes from having a hard-working staff.
“2012 PASS and HSAP scores showed increases in most grades and all content subjects. Anderson One scores well exceed the state average on PASS and HSAP,” said Harrison. “We have outstanding teachers that work tirelessly for their students. Initiatives in ELA, math and STEMS have been helpful to improve instruction.”
