Despite some improvements, test scores show some students at risk of getting 'left behind'

-A A +A
By Dave Bell

The Vandalia School Board last week heard from Superintendent Rich Well that though progress is being made, the district did not meet Adequate Yearly Progress in 2010 standardized test scores.
The district’s scores were 71.8 percent in reading and 74.2 percent in math. The state standard – which goes up each year by 7.5 percent – is currently 77.5 percent, and next year it will rise to 85 percent. The state’s goal is to have 100 percent of the state’s students meeting the standards by 2014.
