For first time ever, ACHS has been named Proficient/Progressing
From Adair County School District
For the first time ever, Adair County High School has been named a Proficient/Progressing High School under the Kentuckyís Unbridled Learning Assessment and Accountability System. Superintendent Alan Reed described the the atmosphere at ACHS as one of celebration.
Reed said, "While the progress at ACHS is a wonderful accomplishment, what is not measured is all the students that now have opportunities in careers ranging from welding and metal fabrication, health careers, EMT, and nearly 40 others that never existed before."
"We also have no way, at least not yet, to measure the economic impact to Adair County thanks to Adair County High changing the way they do business by switching to a career path for everybody high school. And letís not forget Indian University that letís students complete a large number of college hours at very reduced cost while still in high school."
Reed added, "ACHS reached its goal, thanks to the diligent efforts of students, teachers, administrators, support staff, board members and the pride and support of the entire community."
Adair County Middle was designated Needs Improvement/Progressing. The school gained much ground last year moving out of Focus School category. The school missed proficient by 1.5 points for 2014-15.
Reed said that while the mood was festive at ACHS thanks to high performance, there was "less cause for celebration at the two elementary schools."
Adair County Primary Center and Adair County Elementary School saw lower mathematics scores which pulled them down to Needs Improvement.
The average for all the Adair County School District was Needs Improvement, but the district still achieved the designation "High Progress District." The district as a whole missed Proficiency by only 1.2 points.
According to Superintendent Alan Reed, the school and district leadership has already begun to attack the problems associated with less than acceptable math scores coming from the districtís two elementary schools. "We will not settle for mediocrity at any level." said Reed.
For detailed information on the district and each school, go to the Kentucky Department of Educationís School Report Card website: Applications.education.ky.gov/SRC. State-wide accountability data is available at Openhouse.ky.gov/data
