Boyle County Board of Education began its first meeting of the new school year on Thursday night at Boyle County High School by reviewing last year's test scores.
Assistant Superintendent Mike LaFavers gave a detailed report on the district's progress on No Child Left Behind assessments. Boyle scored a 75.41 overall in reading and 67.23 in math.
Because the district met adequate yearly progress on all of its NCLB goals for the second consecutive year, it now has been removed from "tiered" status. The report also showed that Boyle finished second only to Scott County among central Kentucky schools in overall reading and math scores.
Lafavers pointed to the fact that progress has been made every year since 2005. He also noted the annual standards will be raised until 2014, when NCLB mandates that all schools reach 100 percent proficiency.
