Anderson One at top of new accountability system


Replaces NCLB education standards

Anderson School District One received high marks on the state’s new Federal education accountability system for 2012. Anderson One’s received an A rating with the highest numerical score in the state.

Each school district was graded based on elementary and middle ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies proficiencies on standardized tests and the percent of students that tested. The high school score came from the four content subjects, percent tested and graduation rate. The new system replaced No Child Left Behind and Adequate Yearly Progress rating systems.

Superintendent Dr. Wayne Fowler said, “We are pleased with the results of our efforts for 2012. Anderson One continues to score among the top in the state. The administration, teachers, students and parents are to be commended for their role in this rating.”

Jane Harrison, Director of Elementary, said “2012 PASS and HSAP scores showed increases in most grades and all content subjects. Anderson One scores well exceed the state average on PASS and HSAP. We have outstanding teachers that work tirelessly for their students. Initiatives in ELA, math and STEMS have been helpful to improve instruction.”
