State testing results are in for Omaha Public Schools and the superintendent is calling most of the scores a success based on improvement over time.
Mark Evans broke the numbers down in a press conference Tuesday afternoon. He attributes higher scores and graduation rates to the district’s aggressive action plans.
In reading, over five years, NeSA scores have gone up from 52 percent to 63 percent.
In math, over four years, scores are up from 41 percent to 51 percent.
In science, over three years, scores are up from 42 percent to 49 percent.
Evans said, “Our teachers, our principals, the leadership in this district clearly the goal-setting, the activities whether it's strategic planning or other areas are making a difference."
