MAP Test Data

You might have heard or read a story in the local news on December 2, about our 2020-21 MAP test data. The district believes our staff, students, parents, and community members are entitled to the complete story. So, it is important that we clarify some of the information you may have read or heard. The following points were shared with the media yesterday.

Observations From 2020-21 SJSD Results

    • Despite the pandemic, the SJSD has maintained ACT participation rates.
  • SJSD attendance has declined from 88% attendance in 2018 to 75% attendance in 2021.

We know there are areas that need attention, and we are working on a plan to address where we are deficient. We will continue to review the data and look for ways to improve what we do and how we support our students, families and staff.

Last year was an extremely challenging year for students, staff, and parents. COVID-19 changed all aspects of a typical school year. Even with these challenges and changes, everyone worked tirelessly to focus on the academic success of our kids. It has continued to be a tumultuous year which has caused us to have to learn new skills, adapt to ever-changing situations while keeping students engaged and inspired. 

We will always work to do our best to keep you well informed. Thank you for your support
