Decatur Public School District Sees Drop in Standardized Test Scores

Posted:

DECATUR - The newest standardized test results for the Decatur Public School District were revealed during a school board meeting Tuesday.

A presentation displayed scores for both the I-SAT and PSAE, which had declined from last year in almost every category.

With the I-SAT, however, a 20-30 percent decrease was expected state-wide, explained administrators.

Over two dozen schools, however saw a decrease higher than 30 percent.

"We're not where we need to be," said Board Member Fred Spannaus.

Several other board members voiced similar concerns following the presentation.

There were several bright areas, however. According to the report, four schools made AYP that had never before met that standard.

Two other schools made AYP in one of two categories.
