OUSD Test Score Slide Show

Posted by novometro on September 11, 2007

On Wednesday, OUSD will present this slide show detailing the district’s sorry performance on standardized tests in 2007. Nearly half of all students in the district are “below basic” or “far below basic” in math, and 41 percent of OUSD students fall into the same categories in reading and writing. Looking for some scrap of good news, two schools (Parker Elementary and Bella Vista) managed to test their way out of what’s known as Program Improvement. That’s a No Child Left Behind designation that leads to the school being shut down after too many years of being in the dreaded “PI.” Two schools (Rise Community and Far West High) on the brink of “PI” avoided the fate.
