Local school officials are pleased with the results of the state assessment tests released Tuesday morning by the Nebraska Department of Education.
“We’re closing the gap with the state average. We’re getting better,” said Chad Dumas, director of curriculum, instruction and assessment with Hastings Public Schools. “We’re not satisfied though. We’re not going to rest on our laurels. We want to be 90 percent or better proficient across the district.”
Both Dumas and Josh Lewis, the curriculum director at Adams Central, agreed that the three years of results in the reading test created the most important numbers in terms of comparison.
