By Governor Dave Heineman
November 15, 2013
Dear Fellow Nebraskans:
Two weeks ago, I shared with you the statewide reading, math, science and writing assessment results for Class A and B schools. This week I want to share the results for our Class C-1, C-2 and smaller high schools.
This data allows parents, citizens, school boards, superintendents, principals, teachers and elected officials to compare results from one district to another in order to improve student and school academic achievement performance.
The top scores are as follows:
Reading Math Science
Class C-1 Auburn Pierce Gordon-Rushville
Milford Auburn Syracuse
Ord** Gordon-Rushville Fillmore Central
Syracuse** Syracuse Fairbury***
Fairbury Wayne Pierce***
Class C-2 North Bend Crofton Crofton
Thayer Central Oakland-Craig Blue Hill
Yutan Blue Hill Elmwood-Murdock**
Battle Creek Centennial*** Kimball**
Crofton Louisville*** Cambridge
Smaller Bertrand* Bloomfield* Bertrand*
Schools Creek Valley* Leigh* Bloomfield*
Bancroft-Rosalie** Creighton Franklin*
Bloomfield** Kenesaw*** Leigh*
Kenesaw Loomis*** Loomis*
*tied for first
**tied for third
***tied for fourth
I want to congratulate Crofton for scoring first again this year in math and science. That’s an outstanding achievement.
Regarding the reading assessment, 22 Class C-1 schools, 23 Class C-2 schools and 36 smaller schools had a higher score in 2013 than they did in 2010.
Regarding the math assessment, 24 Class C-1 schools, 27 Class C-2 schools and 43 smaller schools had a higher score in 2013 than they did in 2011 which was the first year of the math assessment. Bloomfield has had a perfect score on the math assessment all three years.
Regarding the science assessment, this was the second year for the test and 28 of 39 Class C-1 schools, 29 of 41 Class C-2 schools and 39 of 59 smaller schools improved their scores in 2013. That’s excellent progress. Bertrand and Stuart have had a perfect score on the science assessment in both 2012 and 2013.
I want to thank the school districts for the increased emphasis that they have placed on academic achievement. It is making a difference.
