Logan Elm School District Exceeds the State Average on 2013 ACT Results
This morning local media outlets reported that the ACT scores of many districts in the state declined this year. I am pleased to report that our average test scores exceeded the state averages in English, Reading, Science and overall composite. Logan Elm High School scores were also higher than the scores reported over the past five years in our district. Students who indicated they completed the most rigorous coursework at Logan Elm High School had an average score of 25.9 in science and a 24 in mathematics. This would include taking Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Trigonometry and Calculus. The ACT is a curriculum-based test in English, Mathematics, Reading and Science. The highest score on this test is a 36.
The following is a summary of our scores.
The district will continue to work on preparing our students to be college and career ready!
Safety Plans and Procedures
With the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut we wanted to assure parents that the Logan Elm School District is making every effort to provide our students and staff with a safe learning environment. On Monday morning, I visited all the buildings in the district and talked with administrators about their safety plans and procedures. During the school year, we practice multiple safety drills and review our safety plans with school personnel and students. We also work closely with local law enforcement agencies throughout the school year to make certain our students are safe.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families in Newtown, Connecticut.
Tim Williams, Superintendent
