OLYMPIA - The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction released results for the statewide assessments taken in the 2018–19 school year on Tuesday. The statewide assessment results are one view into how the K–12 system is serving Washington’s students.
For the Clarkston School District, results were down compared to the results from across all Washington school districts.
First and foremost, attendance is down across the district. According to the assessment, 77.5% of Clarkston students are regularly attending classes, down over 5% compared to the state average of 82.9%.
68.3% of students in the Clarkston school district graduated in four years, compared to 80.9% across the rest of the state. Along those same lines, only 37% of Clarkston students met the ELA (English and Language Arts) State Standards, with the state average reaching 48.9%. Clarkston students meeting the statewide math standards are also down 3%.
Beginning with the Class of 2020, the statewide assessments in Math and English language arts taken in the 10th grade can also be used as one of eight pathways to graduation.
The statewide assessments measure system progress, and are a component of the Washington School Improvement Framework, a tool the state uses to see which schools need the most support.
