R-3 Mulling A Move To Success Ready Student Network

The Lebanon R-3 School District will be requesting a waiver from the State Board of Education to opt out of the MAP test as a gauge for student success. The district wants to move to a program called the Success Ready Student Network. Lebanon R-3 Superintendent, Dr. David Schmitz, discusses the problems the district has with the MAP testing system, and how the new program would fix those problems…………

District APR scores were just released a few weeks ago. Those numbers showed that Lebanon R-3 students scored 6 out of a possible 12 points in English Language Arts, 6 out of 12 possible points in Mathematics, 2 out of a possible 4 points in science, and 3 out of a possible 4 points in Social Studies. The district as a whole received 86.9 points out of a possible 128, for a percentage of 67.9 percent. The state average in Missouri was 77 percent.
