Morris Schools Superintendent Rick Lahn gave a report to the Morris School Board this week on the legislative initiative known as World’s Best Workforce. The law required all school districts to set goals and report progress in five distinct areas.
The state changed the standard for measurement of one of the goals, closing the achievement gap between white and minority students, so results of past efforts are unknown. But Lahn reported that goals were met in the areas of early childhood school readiness, reading well by Third Grade, and graduating students who are college and career ready.
One goal, however, remained difficult to achieve.
Lahn said the administration and staff will examine ways to improve in each area and set goals for the coming year.
