Analysis: Frankfort CCSD tops local peers with 63% of students passing annual tests
Frankfort Community Consolidated School District 157C had the highest rate – 63 percent – of students locally who passed the annual state assessments for the 2015-2016 school year, according to a Will County Gazette analysis of Illinois State Board of Education data.
Of the 29 districts in Will County, Fairmont School District 89 had the highest rate of students in the state who fell below standards on the annual tests with 92.6 percent.
Statewide, 34 percent of students met or exceeded expectations. The remaining 66 percent did not meet, partially met or approached expectations.
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assesses a student’s aptitude in math and English language arts for elementary to junior level of high school and is based on the Common Core State Standard principles. Illinois is one of eight states participating in PARCC as a means to measure a student’s preparedness for higher education.
The scores – a composite derived from the combined results of the Math and English tests – reveal whether a student is or is not ready for the next level. Student scores either “did not meet,” “partially met,” “approach,” “met” or “exceeded” expectations. Any student who meets or exceeds expectations is considered ready for the next level.
