Lincoln High scores hit target goals

-A +A
We take accountability very seriously in Western Placer Unified School District. We have been working very hard to demonstrate improved academic performance not only to the state and federal governments but to our community, parents and students. By any measure, we are succeeding in that effort. We are exceeding expectations and reaching our goals ahead of schedule. The newspaper’s Sept. 17th headline on A1 reported scores were up across the district but singled out Lincoln High School as missing its targets. Lincoln High met all academic targets and accelerated its rate of improvement the last two years. Lincoln High School test scores have gone up an average of 20 points since 2007-08. The LHS API was 18 points better than last year; more than three times the growth target set by the state for 2008-09. These facts are on the district Web site and available from the state Department of Education. Scott Leaman, Superintendent, Western Placer Unified School District
