Several local schools miss mark on No Child Left Behind
Several local schools are listed as missing adequate yearly progress goals under the Federal No Child Left Behind law.
Even though Beloit Memorial High School is listed as needing improvement in the area of math and reading for students with disabilities, Superintendent Milt Thompson says he's pleased with the great strides made by teachers in recent years. Thompson says decisions to use a unified curriculum at the elementary level, supplementing student support in math at the middle school level, and offering additional time for students to become proficient, are showing great promise. Janesville School District Director of Curriculum Kim Ehrhardt says special attention will be given to Edison Middle School after it failed to meet federal expectations in the area of reading for students with disabilities.
Other area schools on the list include Edgerton Community Elementary in the area of reading for students with disabilities.
