1 Thursday, December 23, 2010 N/Warren Town and County News Page Nine SUPERINTENDENT'S UPDATE Concluded from p.1 As you can see, Norwalk third grade reading scores are improving at a rate which exceeds the State of Iowa and even outpaces our compe- tition in the central part of this state (AEA 11). As most of you know, Central Iowa is not only a powerhouse for activities, it contains the most competitive demic schools in Iowa. This accomplishment resulted from multiple prongs of attack. The board has consistently held class sizes at the elentary level to the lowest level that is fiscally possible. The board also enacted a very successful summer school program. The board invested heavily in reading curriculum and an implementation study which followed. Probably most significant achievement is that programs have been implemented with fidelity by dedicated teams of teachers. As with all initiatives, a great amount of change is required as people move from methods and strategies with which they are familiar to those which required different skill sets. In a nutshell, teaching is very hard work and teaching more effectively is even harder work. I appreciate those elementary teachers who have embraced those changes. They should be especially gratified as they watch their children succeed at a rate which is unparalleled in Norwalk history, outpacing our peers in Iowa and other central Iowa schools. In a nutshell, the proof is in the pudding. As you can see, our biggest jumps have only occurred in the last few years, after the combined implementations of this complex master plan. The School Board, teachers, parents, Oviatt administrators and students can take pride that their hard work is paying dividends. Later, let's talk about the national goal of one hundred percent profi- ciency. If anyone can do it, Norwalk can!
