The Clark-Shawnee Local School District’s effort to support its youngest learners was recognized in an article regarding Early Literacy scores in the Springfield News-Sun.
The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) released partial report card data Thursday, January 14. The district received a “B” for Early Literacy; 65.9 percent of K-3 students who required reading intervention in the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year were back on track by the start of the 2014-2015 school year.
“Early literacy success is important to a student’s overall academic success,” said Assistant Superintendent Brian Kuhn. “While we are happy more K-3 students are achieving reading milestones, we won’t be satisfied until 100 percent of our students are on track.”
Data released from ODE also included graduation rates. The district earned an “A” rating for both the four-year (94.6 percent) and five-year (96.4 percent) graduate rates.
