Applauds district for its OSPI test scores | Letter


Congratulations to the Oak Harbor School District and Board — the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction test scores for the 2013-14 year improved in nearly every category.

Although test scores are not the only measure of student success, they are the best barometer available.

Of particular note, math scores went up for each grade whereas state wide math test scores went down in several grades.

It is clear that a lot of hard work went into this improvement, including that of students, teachers, administration and the school board.
