Diane Lee: THE PROJECT AT THE COURTHOUSE STARTED OVER HEALTH AND SAFETY CONCERNS AND WHERE THAT PROJECT STANDS NOW. GOOD EVENING. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US AND EVERY PUBLIC SCHOOL IN A SOUTH CAROLINA NOW HAS A REPORTCARD SHOWING HOW THEY HAVE DONE IN THE LAST YEAR . WE HAVE TOBIAS RODRIGUEZ BREAKING DOWN HOW THAT WORKS AND WHAT PARENTS LOOK FOR. Reporter: THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION GREAT SCHOOLS AND GIVES THEM A CHANCE TO SEE WHAT THEY CAN IMPROVE ON AND GIVES PARENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THE INS AND OUTS OF THEIR SCHOOL OF THEIR CHILD. STUDENTS AT SOUTH CAROLINA ARE LEARNING MATH AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE DEFINITION OF A PALISADE IS. IT’S THE WALL. Reporter: THEY ARE SHARPENING SKILLS. TODAY, EVERY SCHOOL RECEIVED A REPORT CARD EXAMINING THEIR SKILLS AND FAULTS IN THE PALMETTO STATE. A LOT OF THIS IS RAW TEST SCORES AND LOOK AT DATA AND ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AND SOME IS GREAT. Reporter: THEY RECEIVED RATINGS FROM UNSATISFACTORY TO EXCEEDING AND THEY HAD DIFFERENT CATEGORIES LIKE STUDENT GROWTH AND GRADUATION RATES AND CLASSROOM LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND MORE AND ACCORDING TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION 77 PERCENT OF THE SCHOOL RATINGS EITHER REMAIN THE SAME OR IMPROVED FROM LAST YEAR. 17 PERCENT DROPPED AT LEAST ONE RATING AND THESE NUMBERS FROM THE STATE GIVE PARENTS A CHANCE TO ASK QUESTIONS. WAS THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE DATA. DID NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE FILL OUT THE SURVEY, WHAT HAPPENED HERE? WHAT ARE WE DOING TO MAKE BETTER PROGRESS OR WHAT KIND OF THINGS DO WE HAVE IN PLACE TO HELP THE SCHOOL IMPROVE AND MOVE ON? Tobias Rodriguez: STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION SAYS REPORT CARDS ARE A MEASURE OF SUCCESS BUT NOT THE ONLY MEASURE OF SUCCESS.THE URGE SCHOOL AND LOCAL COMMUNITIES TO CONTINUE CONVERSATIONS. ASK YOUR CHILD’S TEACHER AND HAVE A CONFERENCE WITH THE PRINCIPAL AND FIND OUT WHAT THE SCHOOL IS DOING TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS. Tobias Rodriguez: THERE’S SO MUCH INFORMATION IN THIS REPORT FROM THE STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT AND THE BEST WAY TO UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL IS TO CHECK IT OUT YOURSELF.
