“We have two issues to resolve here,” said Board President, Ken Witt, “One is we have a few specific goals that have been met and we need to talk about how we want to do those, and I think we also have other proposals for goals on the table which we need to consider.”
During their Nov. 20 conversation, the board of education discussed how they want to decrease the current remediation rate to 25 percent, and updated their goal of having third-grade advanced learning plan students increase to the 56-58 percentile in writing, 59-62 percentile in math and 57-59 percentile in reading.

The board will create and vote on motions stemming from these proposals at their December meeting.
