JCPS 2017 State Assessment Results

Kentucky is currently transitioning to a new assessment and accountability system for schools and districts.  The new system is expected to be fully implemented in the 2019-2020 school year.  Consequently, as the state transitions to a new system, the data released for public reporting in 2017 will not include overall accountability scores or classifications.  This year’s scores will include data on the following components: achievement, gap, growth, college-and-career readiness and graduation rate.  The state utilizes the School Report Card on the Kentucky Department of Education website to report the results. 

Jackson County Public Schools Assessment Highlights

  • The percentage of elementary students scoring proficient or distinguished increased from 2016 to 2017 in the areas of reading, social studies, writing, and language mechanics.  In addition, the elementary schools’s percent of proficient and distinguished exceeded that of the state scores in the areas of social studies, writing, and language mechanics. At the elementary level, the percentage of the non-duplicated gap group scoring proficient/distinguished improved in the reading, social studies, writing, and language mechanics.
  • The percentage of middle school students scoring proficient or distinguished increased from 2016 to 2017 in the areas of reading and math.  In addition, the middle school component scores increased in all areas: achievement, gap, and growth.
  • At the high school level, the percentage of juniors that met Council on Postsecondary Education Benchmarks for college level readiness increased in English (18) -up .7 percent; math (19) –up 10.3 percent; and reading (20) –up 14.9 percent.  The ACT overall composite score also increased from 17.7 in 2016 to 18.3 in 2017. In addition, the percentage of students who are College and Career Ready increased to 75.8 in 2017 and exceeded the state score of 65.1.
  • Component summary data for districts is not available from KDE.  Our best calculations indicate that the Jackson County Public School District improved in all five components: achievement, gap, growth, college and career readiness, and graduation rate.
