The State Board of Education recently released last year’s test results for North Carolina’s public school systems.
According to Ashe County Schools, when calculated as a district, they met 37 out of 38 targets. The only one school in their district made adequate yearly progress last school year was Mountain View Elementary. Every school in the district met expected growth standards.
Every school in the Avery County School System met the state’s adequate yearly progress and expected growth last school year.
Every school in the Watauga County School system met the state’s adequate yearly progress and expected growth last year except for Watauga High. According to Marshall Ashcraft of WCS, Watauga High didn’t achieve the state’s adequate yearly progress because there was one subgroup in which less than 95 percent of students took the required test.
