“Our teachers, principals, and academic staff do a great job preparing our students for the spring assessments, and we can and will continue to do more. Although the 2016-2017 scores dipped from the phenomenal growth we experienced the previous year (2015-2016), I am encouraged that we will recover with the instructional and technological focus we have for 2017 – 2018 academic year.”
