Christian County Public School officials today released the results of a new state-wide assessment that was administered to local students for the first time last year.
Throughout the school year, students in 3rd through 12th grades participated in the statewide administration of a variety of tests that are a component of Kentucky’s new accountability system, called Unbridled Learning: College and Career Readiness For All.
District Assessment Coordinator Tracey Leath says even though the new assessment is rigorous, it measures student growth, which will help teachers push students to reach their full potential.
The results from the new assessment also showed Belmont, Crofton, Holiday, Millbrooke, Pembroke, Sinking Fork and South Christian Elementary Schools scored at or above the state average.
When comparing gap scores with state averages, the school district average was above the state average for elementary school students.
