PIERRE — The state House of Representatives agreed Monday the state Board of Education officials must hold meetings across South Dakota to get public comments on the new Common Core standards proposed for K-12 public schools.
PIERRE (AP) — State Education Secretary Melody Schopp says South Dakota has proposed a new system for assessing school performance to replace the federal school improvement law known as No Child Left Behind.
Three area school districts have schools that are identified for improvement in 2010, though they made adequate yearly progress for No Child Left Behind at the district level.
South Dakota’s 2010 NCLB Report Card was released to the public Tuesday. Schools are targeted for improvement and placed on level one after not meeting progress for at least two consecutive years. Levels increase the longer the school doesn’t meet progress. Alert status is in effect for the first year.
Mitchell School District had two elementary schools deemed distinguished in the 2010 No Child Left Behind Report Card, while the middle school was placed on alert for reading.
The report card, released Tuesday by the state Department of Education, revealed that all local schools except for one subgroup in special education on reading met adequate yearly progress. Gertie Belle and L.B. Williams elementary schools were named distinguished schools.
The Mitchell School District made adequate yearly progress for 2009 in all categories of No Child Left Behind, including math at the middle school, which did not meet adequate yearly progress last year.
