Some Naperville students may be carrying their books to a different school this fall.
For the second year in a row, District 203’s Mill Street School and 204’s Georgetown and Longwood Elementary schools failed to have high enough standardized test scores to meet the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act.
Standardized test scores among the schools didn’t measure up to a performance level set by the act.
Now, the school districts must give parents the option of moving their children to one of two new schools.
Students from Mill Street can move to Meadow Glens or River Woods, whose test scores met the necessary achievement levels.
District 204 has not yet announced which schools those from Georgetown and Longwood can move to.
But neither district expects any movement, saying that the students are comfortable where they are.
District 203’s Kitty Ryan is the Assistant Superintendent for Elementary Education. She says, “The instructional program and quality of teachers is the same at Mill as it is at any other school in our district.”
203’s latest redistricting has ensured Mill Street smaller classes sizes for the upcoming year, which they hope will help boost test scores.
