2012 - 2013 state 'Report Card'

2012-2013 Battle Ground Public Schools’ Report Card


Under the federal No Child Left Behind law, all students are expected to meet proficiency standards in reading and math by the year 2014. Schools and school districts are expected to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) annually, based on results of many categories. Washington State uses the Measures of Student Progress (MSP) and the High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE) in determining AYP.


The No Child Left Behind law requires all teachers who teach core academic subjects to be "highly qualified." By definition, a highly qualified teacher has full certification, a bachelor’s degree, and demonstrated competence in subject knowledge and teaching.


This information, along with demographic information, is accessible in full detail at the website of the Washington State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.  To access this report, go to http://reportcard.ospi.k12.wa.us.  Then, in the "Summary" window that says “Washington State,” scroll down to “Battle Ground School District.” 


The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is a program of the U.S. Department of Education. It is the only nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students in the United States know and can do in various subject areas.   Commonly called The Nation's Report Card, NAEP is the only test in the United States that allows comparisons of the performance of students in Washington with performance of students nationally. Assessments are conducted periodically in mathematics, reading, science, writing, the arts, civics, economics, geography, and U.S. history.
