I think this chart begins to tell a pretty good story about our district. I haven't done a complete analysis, but at the highest level, with a 50% increase in students in the district, our kids have scored about 5% higher on *average*. That is a pretty nice statistic given this was done with dramatic growth in the student and teacher population. In the end, I think kudos go to our teacher and administrators, and to our kids and parents. Definitely on the right path.
