Rock Hill Response To Accountability Ratings

Federal Accountability Ratings

August 06, 2012

A Message from Supt. Lynn Moody
Federal Accountability Ratings based on the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) waiver were released on Thursday, August 2. Our overall district score is 89.8 or a B.  While a B rating exceeds the State’s expectations, we are certainly not satisfied. 

Each year we carefully analyze data and set goals for continuous improvement. We have already begun the process for improvement at every school, even our schools which received an A rating. We are working hard to address areas where we find the most challenges, particularly, our graduation rate. 
Here are a few of our strategies for school year 2012-13:
  • making data more readily available for teachers;
  • reassigning home-school workers to focus on tracking high school dropouts;
  • setting benchmarks and gathering best practices from schools or districts like us;
  • focusing specifically on professional development for teachers; and
  • implementing the district’s iRock initiative.
 We certainly have many Points of Pride not reflected in these rankings. Click view the large number of accolades. While we will work to get better each year and to earn your trust, we are, indeed, proud of Rock Hill Schools.
