Adair County a High Progress District
Adair County High School Reaches Proficiency
By Phyllis Curry, Academic Dean, Adair County High School
Adair County has received test scores and other accountability measures that make up the Unbridled Learning /College and Career Readiness for all the 2014-2015 school year. Adair County High School (ACHS) reached proficiency with an overall index of 70.4 and also met the Annual Measureable Objectives (AMO) set for the school by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE).
ACHS is classified as Proficient /Progressing. The graduation rate, tracked using a cohort rate based on incoming freshmen and the number who graduated from that class is 95.4, compared to 90.4 the previous year.
Achievement, based on reading, math, science, social studies and writing at the high school level, is up 3.3 points. College and Career readiness percentages remain strong with 63.8 points gained for students who either met college or career benchmarks, or both.
The CCR numbers have steadily improved, up from 27% in 2009-2010 to more than 55% meeting the target, due to the increased focus on all students being college or career ready when they leave Adair County High School and the additional career pathways being offered, with more offerings in place this year.
Adair County Middle School (ACMS) had the largest gain in the overall index, netting an overall score of 63.3, a gain of 3.1 points. ACMS also met the AMO target for 2014-2015. The school is classified as Needs Improvement /Progressing. An additional 1.5 points would have pushed ACMS to the Proficient category.
Delivery targets were set and locked by KDE in 2013. ACHS has now improved from the 10th percentile to the 73rd percentile based on that target (not a state ranking). ACMS has moved from the 25th percentile to the 58th percentile based on the 2013 target.
The other two schools in the district share joint accountability since kindergarten through fifth-grade span the two buildings- Adair County Primary Center (ACPC) and Adair County Elementary School (ACES).
The joint index for the two schools is 60.4, which placed the schools in the Needs Improvement classification. The schools did not meet the AMO target, though student growth did trend upward.
All schools maximized the points available for their Program Reviews, which evaluate arts & humanities, practical living, and writing, along with a K-3 program review for elementary schools.
As a district, Adair County is one of 17 districts in the state labeled a High Progress District, which is a reward category. The classification for the district is Needs Improvment / Progressing with the district index coming in at 65.0. That score is a gain of 1.8 points from last year and 1.2 points from proficiency.
High Progress Districts criteria include:
Parents are encouraged to attend parent/teacher conferences scheduled for November 2 to discuss their child's assessment results and academic progress.
Information about the test scores released today can be found on the district website under District Report Cards at www.adair.kyschool.us or you may contact Phyllis Curry, Academic Dean at 270- 384-2476, 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY 42728. -Phyllis Curry
