Superintendent Search: ACT Scores
Many in education believe that ACT scores are a better indicator of how well a district educates than MEAP scores. In the tables below, I have listed the ACT scores for each district for the past three years, the difference between 2010 and 2008, and how the trends in each district compare to the trend for the state. Higher numbers for ACT scores and positive numbers for differences and trend analysis are better.
Dr. Gary Richards is the Superintendent of Imlay City.
Mrs. Geraldine Moore is the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum for Rochester.
Mr. Fred Clarke is the Superintendent of Albion.
|Difference 2010 – 2008|
|Trend Difference Between District and State|
The data clearly shows that Rochester scores above state averages, where Imlay City scores slightly below and Albion scores significantly below. However, it also shows that while Rochester has kept pace with the state’s improvement, Imlay City and Albion have not. In fact, Albion’s scores have decreased over the past three years in most areas.
While this data is only over a short period of time and is only one measure of a school district’s success, it is an important measure when considering which candidate would make the best superintendent for a district that wants all their students to be college-ready.
