Supporting Data to demonstrate that the district has or has not met its goal:
The district worked on two reading goals during the 2009-2010 school year. Our first goal stated that at least 86% of all students in grades 2, 3, and 4 will perform at the proficient level or above on the spring Basic Reading Inventory. Proficient performance indicates students ability to read at or above grade level. For the 2010-2011 school year, we did not meet this goal for all grade levels. At least 72% of all students achieved proficiency on the Basic Reading Inventory.

Our second goal indicated that we would increase the percentage of students in grades 3-4-5, 6-7-8 and 11 performing at the proficient performance level as measured by the reading comprehension subtest of the ITBS/ITED. We did meet our goal for all grade spans. During the 2009-2010 school year, 78.1% of all elementary students achieved proficiency (41% or higher) in reading. During the 2010-2011 school year, 81.1% of elementary age students were proficient. This represents 3% increase of proficient students.

During the 2009-2010 school year, 71.7% of all middle level students achieved proficiency (40% or higher) in reading. During the 2010-2011 school year, 71.7% of all middle level students were proficient. Students have maintained proficiency. 

During the 2009-2009 school year, 75.1% of all grade 11 students achieved proficiency (40% or higher) in reading. During the 2010-2011 school year, 79.3% of all 11th grade students were proficient. This represents a 4.2% increase of proficiency.
