Beating the Odds in ELA

Taylor Elementary has been recognized by the Office for Education Policy at the University of Arkansas as a school that is Beating the Odds.  Sixty-six percent of the students at Taylor Elementary are economically disadvantaged; however, students still demonstrated high growth on the ACT Aspire.  Taylor Elementary received the following "Beating the Odds" award:

High ELA Growth: Elementary Level (Central Region)

"Beating the Odds" awards are based on the 2021 content growth score calculated by the Arkansas Department of Education. Growth scores demonstrate how much students improved from 2019 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. Recognition is based on Overall growth and growth in Math and English Language Arts separately. 

Congratulations, Taylor Elementary!!  We are incredibly proud of you.
