North Carolina Releases Interim Progress Report

September 6, 2019

Last week, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction released data “on the interim progress that North Carolina schools are making to reach long-term, 10-year goals, a new reporting requirement under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act.” For this, the second year of interim goals, “one of 10 subgroups (including all students in all groups combined) met interim progress goals for grades 3-8 reading, and two subgroups met interim goals for English II (10th grade reading).” Student performance “on the Math I assessment (reported for 11th graders) showed that all but three subgroups met interim goals.” And “in terms of schools and counting the group that includes all students, 23.1 percent of elementary and middle schools met their interim goals in reading and 8.7 percent in math,” while “among the all-students group in high schools, 26.3 percent met their interim goals for reading and 46.9 percent for math.”
