GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A new report released by the State Department of Education shows District 51 ahead of the curve. But officials say there is still need for improvement.
The 2010 growth model and CSAP data shows growth levels for districts across the state.
It’s the Colorado Department of Education’s recently revised accountability system that puts greater emphasis on how individual students are growing.
District 51 says it’s seeing an improvement in all areas. In math and reading, District 51 exceeds the state median growth of 50 percent and has seen improvement over the past two years.
Math went from 49 to 52 percent and reading is above the state at 52 percent for the second year.
Even though students improved from 51 to 52 percent in writing, the District says this will be an area of emphasis when students come back to school this fall.
