F-F District Remains Fully Accredited
But State Assessment Scores Decline
Board and District officials taking action
Results from the 2014 Missouri Annual Performance Report (APR) for the Ferguson-Florissant School District released Aug. 29 show a decline in the district’s overall score, despite gains in some areas. Ferguson-Florissant received 92 points out of a possible 140 points on the state’s annual assessment, or 65.7 percent.
The start of the school year may have been delayed for Ferguson-Florissant students, but staff and administration were at work after the Board of Education made the decision to postpone the start of school to Monday, Aug. 25. It was sultry hot day nearing 100 on Monday, but classes officially began in the large school district with few hitches.
One day last week approximately 200 staff members from the Jennings School District demonstrated positive community support by helping clean the streets of Ferguson in the aftermath of the unrest in the that community.
Ready to Embrace the New School Year
The Staff and Administration at the Ferguson-Florissant School District have been busy addressing the unforeseen and tragic issues facing our community as we prepare for the new school year. Our Board of Education made an important and supportive decision to delay the school start until Monday, Aug. 25. “Our staff has taken advantage of this extra week to make scheduling adjustments, ensure the safety of our campuses and prepare our staff to welcome our students and celebrate a new school year,” said acting superintendent Lawrence Larrew.
Jennings School also Closed on Tuesday
All schools in the Ferguson-Florissant School District were closed Tuesday, August 19 and will remain closed through Friday, August 22 due to continued unrest in and around Ferguson. This decision was made after much careful deliberation and consideration of input received from local law enforcement officials and district security staff.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
