District only 31 points shy of an ‘A’
By Josh Mitchell/Corinth Today
The Alcorn School District is graded a “B” in the latest statewide accountability results.
The latest grade is based on the 2017 school year.
That puts the Alcorn School District ahead of the average grade of “C” statewide. The district was also graded a “B” last year. Mississippi schools are graded on an A-F scale.
Alcorn School District Superintendent Larry Mitchell said he is proud of Alcorn Central Elementary improving from a C the prior year to an A this year.
Mitchell said it is possible that the district as a whole could be rated an “A” next year, noting that the district is only 31 points away from that goal.
Here is a school-by-school breakdown of accountability grades:
Alcorn Central Elementary: A
Alcorn Central Middle: C
Alcorn Central High: C
Biggersville Elementary: C
Biggersville High: C
Kossuth Elementary: A
Kossuth Middle: B
Kossuth High: A
(The statewide accountability system is based on student achievement and other academic measures.)
