However, the focus of the meeting was evaluating results from the state’s new Unbridled Learning test system. Assistant Superintendent of Instruction Beth Sumner spent much of the meeting explaining Trigg County’s results, released earlier this month. Trigg County Middle and High School were both labeled “needs improvement.” Only Trigg County Intermediate School received the desired “proficient” rating. The district as a whole missed that ranking by just three-tenths of a point. After analyzing data and identifying areas that need attention, Sumner said the next step is deciding how to move forward.
Sumner posed a question to each person at the meeting.
Ideas from the brainstorming session will help teachers and administrators decide how to address problems identified by state test results.
