Crawford Schools celebrate academic progress

Posted: Updated:

Students at Crawford Public Schools receive recognition for their academic achievements.

Superintendent Dick Lesher called an all-school assembly this morning to talk about the success of students over the past couple of years.

In 2009 and 2010, Crawford was identified as a 'Persistently Low Achieving School (P.L.A.S.)"

The school received grants to hire an external provider to improve performance, and ESU 13 helped with staff development.

Last week, Nebraska's State of the School reports was released, "And as of last Tuesday, no more of this," said Lesher, as he crossed out P.L.A.S. on a whiteboard, "Give yourself a hand."

Crawford Public Schools has also made 'Adequate Yearly Progress' for the past two years. That's a feat only a handful of nearby districts  (Sioux County and Hay Springs) have achieved.

"Teachers have worked tremendously hard," explains Lesher. "They've embraced everything that we've brought in so far, and it's going to continue. So that's been very instrumental in improving."

Superintendent Lesher says standardized testing is still very important and isn't going away.
