With the conclusion of the 2010-2011 school year, the Citizen Schools Texas team is excited about the impact that Expanded Learning Time (ELT) has had on our students. This year was the first year that Citizen Schools served every 6th grader at Jane Long Middle School and the results have been amazing. TAKS results for our ELT students show significant gains in Math and Reading rates. From 2010 to 2011, Math passing rates (percent passing plus percent Commended) rose from 70% to 77% and Commended rates jumped from 13% to 30%. Reading achievement also climbed, with passing rates improving from 63% to 73%, and Commended rates from 16% to 26%. Achieving Commended status represents real achievement by a student and essentially demonstrates that a student is on a successful college and career pathway.
We thank all of our campus staff, professional volunteers, corporate and private partners for their dedication in making this year a success. What a great way to say WOW!
