Johnson County students passed both the English and math ISTEP sections at a higher rate at 17 of the 29 Johnson County public schools, the Daily Journal reports.
Concerns arose after problems with the ISTEP process during the last testing process; however, schools have been pleased that thus far scores have been accurate.
Four school districts specifically have gone up, according to the Daily Journal. Clark-Pleasant, Edinburgh, Franklin and Ninevah-Hensley-Jackson schools all reported higher ISTEP scores. Franklin schools showed the largest improvement out of the four districts.
The percentage of Center Grove students who passed stayed steady. However, the passing rate for Greenwood students fell slightly, according to numbers from the Indiana Department of Education.
Two schools showed passing rate improvements that were the highest in the county. The Daily Journal reports that Webb Elementary School’s passing rate on both exams increased 10 percent from last year, while Creekside Elementary School reported a 9 percent increase. These scores are the highest ones for both schools since before 2011.
