State accountability — Boone Central misses one ‘AYP’ standard

Students at Boone Central Public Schools have generally met state standards on Nebraska State Accountability (NeSA) standardized tests, but the school did fall short in one category of “adequate yearly progress” (AYP) goals this year.

At the Nov. 15 Boone Central School Board meeting, Jimmy Feeney, middle school principal and curriculum director, reviewed both the NeSA and Northwest Education Association (NWEA) results for standardized tests taken over the past two years.

The one area where Boone Central did not meet AYP federal accountability standards this year was elementary reading performance in one demographic area. This is based on tests taken in the 2010-11 school year.
