So the STAAR scores have been basically flat for four years and a lot of people are in a tizzy about that little fact. There are a couple of simple explanations for this that I have discussed previously, so I won’t retread that ground. Instead I just want to remind school leaders of one thing.
If everyone else’s scores are flat and your school improves by 2, 3 or 4 percentage points, your school is making exceptional gains. Even if it doesn’t feel like it and no one acknowledges it. So quit freaking out.
Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
