Gifford Grade School does not meet state standards

GIFFORD — Gifford Grade School failed to make adequate yearly progress because of changes in the scoring of the Illinois Standards Achievement Test.

Superintendent Rod Grimsley told the school board this week that overall scores for students meeting or exceeding state standards were 61.8 percent for reading and 71 percent for math.

"The state target for last year contained a Safe Harbor target for each school individual, and we were just below that," Grimsley said.

Target numbers for the school were 70.9 percent for reading and 74.6 percent for math.

A copy of the district report card will be on the school website http://www.gifford.k12.il.us.
