A great day outside grants me an excuse to swing by a local park to take in the sights and sounds while enjoying nature. Just really awesome and very relaxing. >^..^<
So I came across this news brief yesterday about my old high school and its slipping standards.
SPOKANE, Wash.—Rogers High School in Spokane is among 57 schools on a statewide list of the lowest achieving schools in state.
The state used reading and math scores from 2009 and 2011, graduation rates, and ability to meet federal benchmarks to make the list.
Rogers High School recently received a federal grant to boost its graduation rate to 85% by 2014.
