The Middlesboro Daily News: Lone Jack second grade makes drastic improvements
Reading at grade level is important for any student in school. Through the Elgin Foundation Reading Initiative, schools within the Bell County School District now have a way to see how many students are reading at that level.
One school that has improved leaps and bounds is Lone Jack. Upon entering the second grade and completing the fall MAP testing, 35 percent of the students bench-marked and were reading at grade level.
With much work from fall to winter, the students were able to improve to 74 percent benchmark and met their goals. The Lone Jack second grade was the highest scoring second grade in the Bell County School System.
