BURR RIDGE — Hinsdale-Clarendon Hills Elementary District 181 made Adequate Yearly Progress on the 2012 Illinois School Report Card.
This comes a year after District 181 fell short for the first time because 83.5 percent of its students with disabilities met or exceeded state standards for reading on the Illinois Achievement Test, short of the required 85 percent mark.
The 85 percent mark again was the standard in 2012; however, the district’s score of 83.6 percent for students with disabilities for 2012 testing was sufficient to make adequate yearly progress because it is an improvement over the 2011 score.
Individually, each of District 181’s nine schools has met standards every year since the No Child Left Behind Act was enacted in 2003.
As part of the federal No Child Left Behind Act, which requires all public schools to meet minimum standards on student testing, the percentage of students meeting or exceeding standards rises each year. It started at 40 percent and is set to reach 100 percent in 2014.
Overall, 98.4 percent of District 181’s students met or exceeded standards in math, a score slightly better than 98.2 percent in 2011. For reading the percentage meeting or exceeding standards for 2012 was 97.3, better than 96.5 percent in 2011.
“We are using data to focus our instruction,” said Superintendent Renee Schuster. ~.
