Six SD Schools Mistakenly Left Off Progress List
July 28, 2010, 4:51 PM
PIERRE, SD -
The South Dakota Education Department says six high schools were left off the list for meeting adequate yearly progress goals under the federal No Child Left Behind law because of a computer error.
The department issued its report on school progress for 2009-10 earlier this week. The mistake was corrected on Wednesday. The department says the mistake didn't affect the percentage of districts that made adequate yearly progress, which remains at 95 percent.
But, the department says, one of the schools left off the progress list - Chamberlain High School - met the goal for math for a second consecutive year and will be taken off the "school improvement" list. Eight schools remain on that list.
