ROCKET Way Snow Day Update
I’d like for our community and parents to know that our teachers have sent home 5 Rocket Way Snow Day Learning Packets for all students in the event that school is cancelled due to inclement weather. I want to encourage parents to place these packets in a place that can be located later when you get a Rocket Way Snow Day call. Please note that NOT every Snow Day will be a Rocket Way Learn from Home Snow Day so please listen carefully to your ONE Call messages on those days and it will be posted on our District Website and on the Crittenden Press Website. Please call the school if your child has not brought home their learning packet.
2016 Spring Testing Results
Spring 2016 Testing News
Crittenden County School District is pleased to announce that the district is Proficient again! The Proficient classification reflects the combined efforts of all three schools on state testing requirements for the Spring of 2016.
Crittenden County Elementary School and Crittenden County High School both earned Proficient classifications.
Crittenden County Middle School’s classification is Needs Improvement. The achievement portion of the calculation, which is one-third of the score, increased from 2014-2015. However, the gap and growth scores decreased from the former year.
Crittenden County Schools are always working to continuously improve. There is a strategic plan that is driving instructional decisions as well as management decisions in the district. All schools are pointed toward a common direction of improvement in student learning, and we are excited about the future of the district!
Congrats CCMS STLP, 3rd in the State !
