SINGLED OUT AS ONE OF ONLY FOUR
DISTRICTS IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. EAST GRADE MATH SCORES WENT UP. UNFORTUNATELY THE SCHOOL SYSTEM
IS ALSO IDENTIFIED AS THE ONLY

WENT DOWN. WHEN ASKED TO EXPLAIN
WHY FOURTH GRADE MATH SCORES DECLINED SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS

LATERAL ENTRY TEACHERS MANY OF
WHOM WERE TEACHING MATH AND A
DIFFERENT WAY THAN HOW THEY
