Last week, WFPL reported last year’s preliminary ACT scores were released for Greater Clark County Schools.
Around 29 percent of Indiana students were tested and overall they scored above the national average. But Greater Clark County School students didn’t meet the same mark.
Although some schools increased student achievement by 32 percent and all elementary schools met the federal guidelines for adequate yearly progress, the district still has a lot of work to do, said Superintendent Stephen Daeschner.
This year all students beginning in 7th grade will take some version of the ACT. The tests are being funded by the Greater Clark County School Educational Foundation. The estimated cost is around $33 per exam.
