Blue Ridge School administration is celebrating a successful 2023 school report card.
On the WHOW Morning Show Monday, Blue Ridge Superintendent Dr. Hillary Stanifer told Regional Radio they had a targeted building last year that has improved and is no longer in that designation.
For Dr. Stanifer, she is watching closely growth and proficiency. She explains they are looking at improvement and compares how they are doing compared to state levels in math and reading.
According to Dr. Stanifer, chronic absenteeism is impacting her district and its report card. She says they have a 22-percent chronic absenteeism rate and believes a lot of the issues are stemming from COVID decisions.
Dr. Stanifer says while they are pleased with where they are as a district, they are going to continue to seek to improve moving forward and not get complacent.
