Results of the state assessment administered in the spring of 2016 rank Scott County Schools as a Proficient district. Five schools in the district earned classification as Distinguished with four schools ranking Proficient and three in the Needs Improvement category. In 2016, Scott County students exceeded state averages in every content area at every grade level, and more students scored proficient in reading and math at all grades levels as compared to assessment results from 2015.
“Our results confirm that we are on the right track in getting more students to proficiency in reading and math,” commented Superintendent Dr. Kevin Hub. “I am confident that we will continue this momentum as we provide the world class education our community expects us to deliver.”
Again ranked a Distinguished school, Northern Elementary School had an overall score of 85.8, the highest in the district. Northern ranks 24th out of 709 elementary schools in Kentucky. Anne Mason Elementary School is ranked as a Distinguished/Progressing School earning recognition as a School of Distinction for scoring at or above 76 and meeting the school’s Annual Measurable Objective set by the Kentucky Department of Education.
Lemons Mill Elementary School is rated Distinguished/Progressing and is a High Performing School. High Performing Schools earn the qualification as Distinguished by scoring 72.8 or better and meeting the school’s Annual Measurable Objective. Western Elementary School and Royal Spring Middle School each maintained their Distinguished ranking.
Eastern Elementary School, Stamping Ground Elementary School, Scott County Middle School, and Scott County High School are Proficient schools. To be ranked Proficient, elementary schools must score between 67.2 and 72.8. Proficient middle schools score between 65.8 and 70.2. For high schools the range is 70.2 – 75.4.
Garth Elementary School, Southern Elementary School, and Georgetown Middle School received a classification of Needs Improvement. Elementary schools that score below 67.2 and middle schools that score below 65.8 fall in the Needs Improvement category.
As a district, we recognize that only three schools met the Annual Measureable Objective and that there are areas in need of improvement. “Like many districts, we still have work to do. We will not settle for less than all students reaching academic proficiency and college and career readiness,” Hub added.
