Eagle County Schools’ Test Scores Improve for Third Straight Year
The good news keeps on coming for Vail Valley and Eagle County education. The county’s test scores improved for the third straight year, according to 2011 Colorado Student Assessment Program results released by the Colorado Department of Education. This announcement comes on the heels of Colorado Mountain College adding more degrees and the Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy’s relocation.
Reading scores were up one percent, writing scores were up four percent, and math scores were up three percent. In addition, seven of the eight grade levels that were test beat state scores. In order to help students that were off track throughout the school year, teachers intervened or were offered other resources.
For more information about the test scores and highlights from the CSAP results, please visit the Vail Daily article. This is further proof that Eagle County schools and teachers are dedicated to giving our children the best education possible, even if certain challenges are presented. For that, Vail Valley and county residents should all be very proud.
