STANFORD - Students in Lincoln County elementaries have shown marked improvements in meeting federal testing standards for the No Child Left Behind, with all seven of the elementaries meeting their target goals.
"It means that all our schools are doing a good job, from goals set by state and federal government," said Thelma Blair, district assessment coordinator with the Lincoln County Board of Education. "They're doing a good job."
After elementary school, however, students and staff found it difficult to reach all of their target goals, with both the middle school and high school coming up short in more than one sub-category.
According to Blair progress has already been made in the pursuit of meeting federal standards.
"We've (the Board of Education) already been discussing that with the high school and middle school," she said.
At the high school level, two sub-levels of goals were not met; goals regarding disability students and graduation rates.
