Higher scores, more grads among Franklin goals




By the end of next school year the Franklin school district wants more students passing standardized English and math tests and graduating from high school.

Franklin’s current graduation rate is 85 percent, the lowest in Johnson County; and schools’ ISTEP passing rates on math and English range from 67 percent to 90 percent.

At the high school, 77 percent of students recently passed the English end-of-course assessment exam, while 60 percent passed the Algebra I end-of-course assessment.

District leaders want to see all of those rates — ISTEP, end-of-course assessments and graduation — to hit at least 90 percent by the end of the 2013-14 school year.
