“I’m pleased that the district received confirmation that we ‘Met Standards,’ but disappointed that scores from Goshen Creek didn’t reflect the hard work I’ve witnessed. We’re going to use the test results as diagnostic data and develop instruction that will meet the unique needs of all our learners,” Kelley said. “I am completely confident that this year’s results were an anomaly. That campus and those students will rebound, and in August of next year we’ll be talking about Goshen Creek’s ‘Distinction’ awards.”
