All schools meet or exceed growth on READY Report

Every school in Pender County met or exceeded growth in 2014-15 according to the READY Accountability Report released  Wednesday Sept. 2.

Other data reported shows that Pender County Schools exceeded the state average in End-of-Grade overall performance (Reading, Math and Science), End-of-Course overall performance, ACT Composite, ACT WorkKeys, and five-year cohort graduation rate.

Thirteen of Pender County’s 16 schools improved their school performance score, resulting in three schools earning a higher letter grade. As in 2013-14, no schools in Pender County earned a failing grade.

The data reports released today by the state are not final because the state requires a window of time for data corrections. Pender County Schools, along with many other districts across the state, has submitted several significant corrections in data measures reported to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and expects these corrections to be approved by the State Board of Education on October 1. Pender County Schools submitted six corrections. The most significant change affects the reported four-year cohort graduation rate of 84.0 percent, raising it to 90.6 percent upon approval by the State Board of Education.
