CLAREMORE —

According to the State Department of Education, students as a whole did not experience depressions in scores, however, it is possible that some individual students did not perform to their highest potential during the disruption.
Barresi said she would not report the scores of impacted students who scored limited knowledge or unsatisfactory.
“I suspect that our students did well based on the number of advanced and proficient scores, but it’s a little early to tell for sure,” said McClaren.
The current A-F school report card includes components from the EOI testing. Other portions include student achievement, student growth and whole-school improvement. Whole-school improvement includes student attendance, dropout rates and number of students in advanced courses.
Out of the 32 schools in Rogers County, two received an A, 21 scored a B, eight scored a C and two schools received a D last year.
The grading system created controversy last year among superintendents who said scores gave a disproportionate weight to low-performing students and that the grading was biased in favor of larger districts. State Department of Education spokeswoman Sherry Fair said the report cards will be released publicly around the end of October.
