County board adopts improvement plan for school district

(Continued)

RICHMOND —

3. To increase the number of students who are scoring proficient and/or distinguished in math or reading

Math and reading are the two areas that are focused on, not only by the state department of education, but nationally, Peffer said.

“In order to do that, we’ll be looking at the standards and making sure we are teaching to the standards of what students are going to be assessed on,” he said.

4. To increase the achievement of students in the non-duplicated “gap” group (students with special education needs, are a minority, receive free or reduced lunch or are English Language Learners, students who have not mastered the English language because they are new to the country)

“We want to make sure we are providing opportunities for students classified in the ‘gap’ group and that we’re meeting their needs where they are,” Peffer said.
