Sioux City Schools Receive Poor Report Card

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, IA -

Sioux City and Iowa's schools have failed to meet federal requirements for the No Child Left Behind Act.
 
Only 7 Sioux City elementary schools made adequate yearly progress (AYP) towards reaching the federal testing benchmarks.

The district says even with significant student achievement, it has work to do in several areas.
 
"We have a strategic plan and we are going to target our reading and math in the upcoming year, as well as other areas. But our focus is definitely going to be on reading and math improving student achievement in those two areas," said Kim Buryanek, Sioux City Schools director of curriculum instruction and assessment.
 
Iowa is one of only 4 states nationwide that has not been waived from having to answer to the No Child Left Behind Act.

State and local administrators hope to see that change in the near future.
