EPS Earns “Excellent” Rating From AQuESTT

New state accountability results released today showed that more than half of all public schools were classified as excellent or great.
At last week’s District #18 Board of Education meeting, EPS Principal Greg Wemhoff said when the scores were finalized, EPS was among the 13 percent of all schools in the state which graded “excellent.”
“Obviously, we’re sitting pretty good,” Wemhoff said. “We want to get better.”
Under AQuESTT, Accountability for a Quality Education System Today and Tomorrow, schools were classified excellent, great, good or needs improvement.
A breakdown showed that 147 or 13.01 percent of the schools were classified excellent, 473 or 41.86 percent were great, 423 or 37.43 percent were good and 87 or 7.70 percent were designated as in need of improvement.
