The Mississippi Department of Education has released their accountability report. Officially, the state school districts have shown improvement. There are no districts with an F rating, and fewer with a D rating. However, if their scores went down, many schools claimed their score from the year before, under a federal waiver regarding a transition to new requirements.
Scanning the list, I noted improvement in Coahoma County Agricultural High School, North Panola County School District, Cleveland High School, Friars Point Elementary School, Webb Elementary School (Greenville), East Elementary School (Leflore County), Brooks Elementary School (North Bolivar), Ruleville Central Elementary School, Redwood Elementary School (Vicksburg Warren), Water Valley High School, Mcevans School (West Bolivar), West Bolivar District High School, O’Bannon Elementary School (Western Line School District), and Woolfolk Middle School (Yazoo City).
Psalm 95:2-3 NIV
Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.
We give thanks to You, Lord God, for the improvements made in these schools. Amen.
