Area school districts meet standards

Springtown superintendent vows low-rated elementary campus will improve


“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.”

Peaster ISD

Peaster ISD received Met Standard as a district. One campus, Peaster High School, received a distinction in mathematic achievement,

“We are extremely proud of our achievements and the progress we are making,” Peaster superintendent Matt Adams said.

“All of our scores on each index were well above the state targets,” Millsap superintendent David Belding said. “This is exciting for our community and a testament to the quality of our teachers, students, and staff.”

“The high school’s distinction in math, displays a strength of our instructional program when compared to other schools similar to Millsap High School. We are excited about this accomplishment,” Belding said. “We are also pleased with our score on Index 4 which is post-secondary readiness. This score looks at graduation rates and the percentage of students who are graduating on the Recommended and Distinguished plans. This shows that our students graduating high school have completed a rigorous academic program.”
