The long overdue Smarter Balanced test scores have finally been released by the Department of Education. Timberlane handily surpassed the state average in reading and math at the elementary level. In the good news department, our middle school student scores also surpassed the state average; however, our 11th grade students collectively are still scoring below state average.
As this blog has pointed out many times before, Timberlane should not be content with comparing itself to the state average but should rather look at its academic and financial performance in relation to comparable districts in the state. That comparison will be coming on this blog. We hope that, too, is showing improvement.
