MCPS is ‘proficient and progressing’

-A A +A
By Stevie Lowery

There is reason for the Marion County Public School District to be excited today with the release of statewide test results, which show that MCPS has improved from a “needs improvement” district to a “proficient and progressing” district. Compared to other schools in the state, the district made a big jump from the 60th percentile to the 83rd percentile.
“We have a lot to celebrate,” Superintendent Taylora Schlosser said, “but we can’t let good be the enemy of great. Because when you dig in and look there are some things that we really need to work on.”
The 2012-13 school year was the second round of a new state assessment called Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP). The information below shows a snapshot of how each school performed. Much more will be reported in The Lebanon Enterprise’s Oct. 2 edition.
