Test scores ‘not even close’ to where they should be.
The Macon County Board of Education got a stern wake up call last week from Interim Superintendent Dr. Jim Duncan. He addressed the board regarding Macon County's 2011 test scores.
According to Dr. Duncan, based on the school district's End of Grades test scores, and ACT benchmark test, which is taken in the 11th grade to determine a student's preparedness for college level courses, Macon County is far below where they should be as a district.
“If you look at our test results based on surrounding counties, we are not even close to where we should be testing,” said Dr. Duncan. “There is no reason why we should be testing below average, or even average compared to other districts in the Western region of the state.
