Differences may suggest some student groups are not getting the support to succeed. Note: Subgroups that are less than 25 in the total number of students tested are not included here.

How many students who were not on grade level last year met their growth benchmark in Math?

Math 8%

These are students who were not on grade level last year are on track to be on grade level within three years.


How many students who were not on grade level last year met their growth benchmark in English Language Arts?

English Language Arts 13%
