At the first District 203 board meeting since the start of school, the ACT was in focus.
Administrators reviewed the recently released composite ACT score for the class of 2016.
“Our district composite was the highest in our history with the class of 2014. And had decreased two tenths and then one tenth of a percentage point of the last two years. Our scores, when compared to scores in the past, have reached a high level and held steady,” said Assistant Superintendent for Assessment and Analytics with District 203, Tim Wierenga.
In 2014, the composite score was 25.1 compared with the class of 2016’s score of 24.8. While it did go down over the past two years, the district’s score has continually been higher than the state and national averages of 20.8.
However, this year the district will administer the SAT, as the State has officially switched to that test to measure college and career readiness.
Later in the meeting, board members debated whether the length of their leadership terms should remain two years, or be reduced to one.
The board will vote on the leadership term lengths at their next meeting.
