End-of-year assessment scores in our area over the last few years consistently show that only 50% or less of early learners are proficient in their reading and math skills. More than 50% of school-aged children here are also categorized as economically disadvantaged. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened these statistics. Literacy scores have dropped to new lows of 30-40% of learners showing proficiency, and the numbers of those categorized as economically disadvantaged are rising. We strive to offer all of our students equitable solutions to their learning challenges.
