2 SCHOOL PERFORMANCE LINKS FOR IA SCHOOL BOARDS

9-6-16

Greetings, Iowa Association of School Boards and all—

Please post the following 2 links on the IASB website and forward them to all school boards in the state as well—so for the first time they will know what is going on in their school districts!!  

Please advise if you don’t inform the boards as requested, and Iowalive will use other means—including the superintedents. 

Iowalive expects about 55%, a majority of Iowa school board members, would take the links seriously and take corrective action.  This would  be highly beneficial to Iowa kids and would raise their test scores  by at least 15% in three years—at no additional cost!!  These board members would make much better use of existing school funding—and they would expect improvements and better hold school officials accountable in the process!! 

Boards will be shocked to learn less than 15% & 51% of Iowa students, tested in reading and math, can compete with international and U. S. students respectively.  These are numbers Iowalive obtained from the Dept. of Education, as reported in the links.  The Dept. of Ed. effort to compile them should be put to good use by school boards. 

LINKS ARE POSTED ON http://www.iowalive.net/  AS WILL BE THE  SCIENCE TEST SCORES--SOON

COMPARE IOWA MATH TEST SCORES FOR ALL GRADES TESTED 2015-2016

COMPARE IOWA READING TEST SCORES FOR ALL GRADES TESTED 2015-2016
