“I want to thank students, teachers, parents, and school leaders throughout the state for their commitment to academic success,” said Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart. “This year’s results reflect both higher standards and temporary safeguards the State Board of Education approved to help smooth the transition. As we continue toward implementing Common Core State Standards and assessments, we will continue to raise the bar as we prepare our students for success beyond high school.”
