Congratulations to Houlton Elementary School Students and Staff for Significantly Exceeding Expectations on the 2020-2021 School Report Card!
Each School Report Card Provides a Score in the Following Priority Area:
- Student Achievement: Measures the level of knowledge and skill among students in the District, compared to state and national standards. It includes language arts and mathematics.
- Student Growth: Describes how much student knowledge in language arts and mathematics changes from year to year.
- Target Group Outcomes: The Target Group represents students with the lowest scores in any given year. The following year, the same group of students’ scores are reviewed to see if their academic growth has increased at an accelerated rate. This provides important information to the School District to ensure students who have the greatest need for academic growth receive
- On-Track and Postsecondary Readiness: Looks at high school graduation rates, attendance and the potential for students to succeed after graduation.
The School District continually reviews and revises its curriculum and instruction to ensure we address areas for student growth. Time is taken to understand where there are successes and build on those successes to improve academic achievement for all students.
The School Report Cards are just one tool of many the School District uses to assess student progress.
Most of the data reported comes from statewide assessments: Forward exam in grades 4-8, Aspire in grades 9 and 10, and ACT in 11th grade.
We are proud of the students and staff that have worked hard to have all of our schools exceed or significantly exceed expectations.
